Whats a good torque converter?

Hey guys what's a good torque converter and stall for around $400-$500 for my setup ( Edelbrock performer heads, intake, trickflow stage 1 cam, and all bolt ons and full exhaust)

I believe precision industries makes the best one out there however they are pricey. Edge makes a decent one within that price range last time I looked. Is this a daily driver or a race car? Stall will really depend on what you plan to do with it. I wouldn't go over 3k on a street car though

Im not the most knowledgable on them but id say 2.5-3k would be a nice spot. Other factors are gears and tire size. Are those stock?

+1.... i would advise getting a lock-up converter, since it's not a race car and im assuming under 500hp. also, expect your fuel milage to plumet a bit with the stall, cause the converter will be slipping while in low speed city/cruising.

Give Circle D a call and see if they offer one. They have been proven countless times, and their prices are awesome.

I had a Precision, and it was great. Definitely recommend them as well.

I'd advise something 2800ish. It'll definitely wake it up, and it won't be too big that it ruins the driveability.
