    th350 truck converter

    I'm looking for a really cheap converter for my truck. Will be 28 inch tires, 3.73 gears, a shift kit and additional small cooler (one in the rad. already). The truck weighs about 3700 pounds. It's a 350/350 combo with 882 heads, rpm manifold, thunder 650 carb, headers, x pipe. The cam will be around a 262, like the comp xe 262 or maybe 268. 218/224@.050 110 lsa 106 icl (this means it's 4 degrees advanced correct?). So it wont be a powerhouse at all and might not stall a converter to it's advertised spec. I might eventually get some patriot vortecs. This is my driver, but i'm usually above 40 mph so the stall shouldn't affect me much with 3.73's anyway. I was looking specifically at an Acc 2200-2800 rpm converter. I have read good things about acc. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ACC-2...Q5fAccessories The next step up is their 2800-3200, which is a ten inch converter. Any noticible difference in feel as far as how quickly a 10" would rev compared to a 12". Running the 2800-3200 concerns me because this is pretty far up in to my range of speed when in 3rd. Any insight on the whole situation?

    Also, the peak torque with an xe268 is about 3800 rpm with 377 lb/ft of torque and about 330 peak horsepower at 5300 rpm. The Chevy High Performance Goodwrench quest motor is just like what mine will be, so this is where i'm getting the numbers

    Alright, from what i've gathered at the Yank site, you want a converter that has a rated stall about 1000 rpm below your peak torque correct?
