What size cam for 4oo small block?

Hey guys, I got this 400 small block motor that needs a new cam and im wondering how I can get the most power out of it. What size cam should i put on it without having to get a stall converter, and is it possible to get a bigger torqe converter that will allow me to put a bigger cam in it?

You can run whatever cam you want in your 400. But having somebody help you choose which one might be right for you is going to depend on how much information you share with us. We currently know you have a 400 so there's a start. It's probably a Small Block Chevy we but can't be sure because there were several manufacturers that had a 400. So spill the beans and tell us more about what you have.
