I have a Hughes in my dragster and a Transmission Specialties in my truck. I have had good luck with both of them. I've never had much luck with B&M stuff...

It's just a street car with a mild engine....a budget off the shelf converter will work fine.

Thank you for the replies fellas! So unless I'm spending the dough on a converter with the anti-ballooning plate then, they are all about the same? I had one guy tell me the ACC converters on ebay are really good for the money but I had never heard of them.

I can't speak for Summit brand converters but I did buy a Jegs brand 9 inch converter (4500-48000 rpm)
I ran it for 2 years zero problems behind a fairly stout BBC 468.
If I remember correctly I paid around $300 for it.
Now I run and swear by Transmission Specialities (T/S) 8 inch spragless converters. Kinda pricey though, around $1000 to your door.

I have ran just about all of the converters out there coan ptc tci art carr b&m and BTE and they all have worked very well for me ran a PTC for 4 years broke it last year ran a art carr for 4 years and i have a soft hit bte in the car now i do like the soft hit the car is very consistent .
I don't know who is the best if there is such a thing you can buy them from 300.00 to 3000 grand lord knows i have spent enough on them and like i said they all seem to work good.
I guess what I'm saying is if you are happy with it then that's the one.
I have found out for me that maintenance is the key to it all heat will kill one i found out that the hard way.

I have an ACC converter pn 47013 that is 2800 - 3200. I had it in my 67 C10 street cruiser for about 300 miles. I am building a 406 for it now, so I swapped it out for a TCI. It worked pretty good for me. My 350 is similar to yours. Im not trying to turn this into a classified, but I would take $100 for it plus the ride. Its just sittin around here.

Hey Josh, what was it stalling for you in that truck? I may be interested. Thanks!
