    Torque Converter Help!!!!!

    Ive got my engine for my '89 camaro almost done, but i need some suggestions on what stall torque converter i need.
    The engine is a 383 w/ 291 heads, and a cam with a range from 3800 to 7200, valve float at 7400.
    I want enough stall to get this BIG car leaving hard off the line with out over doing it and spinning too much.
    Im hoping i can use the stock 16 in. wheels and 3.73 rear end for a while before changing to a 4.56 gear later next year.
    Thanks for your suggestions,
    Dillon

    CONVERTER SHOULD MATCH CAM UNLESS VEHICLE CANT HOLD TIRES DOWN THEN LESS STALL SHOULD BE USED,SO WITH THAT BEING IM GUESSING OFF HAND YOUR IN 9" LAND,PROBABLY A DOZEN GOOD CONVERTER COMPANYS TO CHOOSE FROM.I WAS JUST AT COAN LAST WEEK THEY HAVE A LOT OF SALES GOING ON,,,

    ESSENTIALLY FIND A CONVERTER THAT WILL LAUNCH CAR @ PEAK TORQUE OR SLIGTLY LESS.I CANT TAKE MUCH OF A GUESS WITHOUT KNOWING EXACT SPECS OF COMPLETE VEHICLE COMBO,BUT IM GUESSING A 4500 STALL MIGHT BE IN THE RIGHT BALL PARK...

    Saw your need for a converter. Keep one thing in mind. What ever you come up with in stall rpm's needed, add 500. I've never bought a converter and have it stall at advertized rpm's. They allways stall lower.
