I'm trying to get an idea of what RPM stall converter I need for my setup. I have called a couple of places but they all say something different, I have come up with answers all the way from 2300RPM up to 3000RPM. I'm hoping that with all of the knowledge in this place someone can give me a solid idea of what I should look for. The car will be driven on the weekend and taken to the strip a few times per year. I want good drivability but I want it to be fun as well. Also being that I'm going from a 350 with nothing more than a mild cam, performer intake and 670cfm carb I'm sure this will be fun no matter what though. I just don't want to end up with the wrong coverter and have this new setup be a big turd because of a converter that is to large or small.

-350 small block
-3.73 rear gears
-th350 transmission
-Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap Intake Manifold
-Holley 4160 750CFM Carb
-Ceramic Hooker Headers
-2 1/2" Magnaflow Exhaust

Cylinder heads are Trickflow Super 23's:
-Combustion Chamber Volume (cc): 62
-Intake Runner Volume (cc): 195cc
-Exhaust Runner Volume (cc): 75cc

-Exhaust Valve Diameter (in): 1.600 in.

Very similar to my setup. I would run 2800-3000. Make sure you run a cooler.
