Torque converter

Ok I asked in another thread a few months ago and I was confused because I received all different answers lol so I'm gonna ask again for those who can help me!

I have a 1994 5.0 aode my mods are : 302cui motor bored .40 over , Edelbrock Performer Heads, Edelbrock Performer Intake, TrickFlow Stage 1 cam (power range 2000-5800rpm) March under drive pulleys, 75mm throttle, 75mm mass air sen, 24lb injectors, full exhaust. My tire and wheel size are the 2004 mustang bullit wheels. The car is not a race car just a funny street car prob only drive it once a week if that! I'm not looming for a custom made converter , just want some that will give me a good idle with the cam I'm using. What stall should I be using?

If you don't mind telling me. How does your car idle since you put that cam in?

The motor is not in yet it's on a engine stand waiting, I need a torque converter and a few other minor things then I was installing all at once

Re: Torque converter

I'd guess a 2200-2800 rpm lockup stall convertor.
You don't want to go to high and have it slipping all the time as it will build up a lot of transmission destroying heat.

Contact the convertor manufacturer of your choice and give them the specs and weight of your car. They will do the best job in helping you choose the correct convertor for your purposes.

I was told by summit racing and jegs that they said to go 300-500rpm more then the lowest power range of my cam which is 2000rpm so they said 2300-2800, now when I called several torque converter companies the said 3200-3600rpm , so that's where my confusing starts lol!

That's strange that the convertor companies would have you go that high.
Maybe they are compensating for the vehicle weight, horsepower, camshaft or something else.

It will launch harder with the higher stall speed, but there will be more slippage untill you get to that rpm range too.

I believe that would be best and the car would be more "drivable" in that range.
