I have a '33 Willys coupe, 350 Chevy, turbo 400, 4.88 gears, and ladder bars. The engine has a Comp Cams 292h magnum with hydraulic lifters. The tranny has a reverse manual valve body.

What stall rpm would you recommend for this car as it is also street driven?

Jack,

On a street application, we just don’t want the converter too loose because of the heat it makes. So we need something to just get the engine up where it starts to make good torque. If it was a race-only application, we could run a much looser converter. On this car setup, possibly a 3,000-3,500 stall converter would be the best choice.

Thanks, Mike
