matt, coan and ati are definately good converters. as for what you need, its best to talk to the guys that build them, they can give you some insight on them and help you make your decision.
but, i must reccomend a place that builds converters right in your back yard. the name of the company is premier torque converters, they are in auburn, right off of highway 18. the number is (253) 288-2233. these guys are a branch of a larger shop (forget the name), and they have done a few converters for my racing buddy's, with much success. this winter when i freshen my motor i'm sending them my converter to up the stall speed slightly, and go through it. they have built the converter for my buddys 1400 horse heavy street nova, and our machinist buddys 67 nova (7 sec street car) runs them as well. they also built a converter for my buddy with a 500+ horse 406 62 nova (street car) so they handle all types, and stand behind their work as well.
if you want to give 'em a call, ask for neal, and tell him you heard about him from the NPSA (northwest pro street assoc.)drag guys, he's a real smart guy, definately knows converters, and will custom build for a very reasonable price. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
