Re: Powerglide To My 351w
Call a converter specialist. Stall speed is the least of your worries. There is also stator design, fin angle, diameter, pump to turbine clearance, etc. Theres literally thousands of people out there who are much better at choosing converters because that is what they do. Pick your favorite. I use a local guy myself.
Don't skimp one bit on the converter because with a Powerglide, converter selection is absolutely CRUCIAL. Too low and you lost a couple tenths. Too high and it'll blow through it. Non-aggressive stator and it will leave like a dog but have great top end (usually). Too aggressive and it'll break parts plus have low MPH. Then you have sprag type or spragless. Spragless is nice for a bracket car where you can afford to lose a few mph. They're great for 1/8 mile. I don't really like spragless converters but that is just me.
