Post What torque converter is right?

I just dropped a 350 in to a 92 Camaro, I bought the motor used with low miles on it. It's balanced and blueprinted and also has roller rocker arms.I am not sure about the heads, I don't know if they are stock or not. We were told that the motor would be pushing about 400 hrspwr. I am in the process of rebuilding a turbo 350 and I was trying to find the best torque converter for an every day driver that will turn heads and blow some of these rice burners of the road. Keep in mind that I have the stock gearing in the rear end. What would be the best stall range and torque converter for this application?

From what you describe, I would be inclined to go with a '2000' stall speed converter. These are made by most manufacturers and allow a little higher idle speed for engines with warm cams that would stall with a tight stock converter when shifted into gear. Best of both worlds, they are still efficient at speed so gas mileage won't suffer.
