My 383 project engine will be between 350-400hp. Some of the torque converters are rated for certain hp rating. I am looking at 1900-2100 rpm range (XE268 cam, 3.73 rear end, 9.6:1 cr, main application is street driving).

Will this one from B&M do okay (Tork Master 2000 for TH350)?

or should I get this one instead (HoleShot 2000)?

Will the first converter be strong enough to handle the engine?

Thanks,

I have the torkmaster behind my 388 (a bit more radical build than the one you outlined). Read my journal if you want to see the specs.

So far so good with it, no complaints-

Excellent, thanks K.!

I have the same converter behind my old worn out 350 that I am replacing with 383 in the Camaro and had no problems with it either.

it just says no big block motors, and even though I'm making some good power with the motor, I don't think its really classified as "wild." Its still a streetable build.
