what would be the best stall converter for me?

Hello again guys..

Im having some converter trouble in my 55 chevy and im in the market to get a new 1.. keep in mind im only going to race this car about twice a month and the rest of the time its gonna be a weekend driver..


Ok here is what i got ok,
its a 55 chevy mini tubbed with a ford 9in, 390 gears, 28x11.5x15 slicks, new 350t trans w/shift kit, 3500 stall that going bad!! 21/2 flowmasters, fenderwall hooker headers, also the car weighs around 3500 pound.

ENGINE' 406sbc
stock deck height, 515 lift 300' adv duration that i might switch to a 525-525 lift 304 adv duration in a few months, small dome piston that should be 10.5 to 11.1 cr, running a new 750 Holley carb w/victor jr tall intake, stock heads other then having 2.02 valves and screw in studs, roller rockers 1.6 ratio, Mallory ignition, timed at 36* also has Holley elec fuel pump set at 71/2 psi....

like i said the stall in it know is a 3500 that is gonna bad,, im thinking i might go to a smaller stall like a 2800 to 3200rpm but not for sure just yet if that would be the best for me...

What is the best bang for my buck when it comes to stall converters also what do you think the stall rpm range would be the best for me??

Here is a link for a new stall on ebay that didnt sound to bad, other then it coming for e bay and all lol. plz check it out and let me know what you think about it ok,,,,,,,,,,,,, thanks for all your help in the past i just love this site

Torque output is a major factor in stall selection. If your engine puts out enough lowend torque to overide the current converter, going to a lower stall may be the thing to do.
The best advice you can get would be direct from a converter manufacturer. They will ask for all of the info you just provided and probably more.
I would NOT buy a converter off eBay... You really have no idea what you are getting and there is no way of knowing without installing it. Too much of a gamble in my book...

I was talking to a guy from redneck performance off ebay, 'i know i should leave these guys alone' lol but we was talking about the stalls they made,,, he said something to me that didnt make since,,, he said there style stall converters wasn't like a 2800 to 3200 stall like all others.... the words out of his mouth said his converters did not flash,,,,

hmm a converter that dont flash i thought they all did.... he said it was a true converter that was a 3000 stall,,,,, i would think all stalls would have a flash point. any idea on what he went by this??? thanks
