    So 300 to 400 slip would be a good guess at 5450 rpm to add on for a c118 cam and ported stage 2 heads? Not so much torque up there any way, my guess.
    Just don't want disaster. If it blows, it's for sale. Struggled to get this far, getting old and broke.
    This site makes me feel younger though, it is my true companion.

    That's pretty much it, the only other thing would be how are you going to use it.. Drag racing, or street driving, or some combo of both.

    Do you have something for my Olds? The engine is a 517" Olds.4.185" bore,4.700" stroke,Velasco billet crank,GRP rods,CP pistons,custom Edelbrock heads,Victor intake,Comp solid roller 11:5:1 compression.It made 774HP/710TQ on 93 octane. It will be going into a 72 Cutlass,weighing about 3600-3700lbs,and has 3:73's. The transmission is a custom-built,with Reid bell,main case,tail.Regular pattern and No transbrake. It will see more street driving than track. Watcha got?

    Sure, my basic converter design/parts were proven in a 3100 lbs tube chassis GS, with a TH 400 and brake.. ran high 8's at 152MPH with 875HP. 1.20 60'

    So durability is no issue.. I add a forged hub and balloon plate to the pump on trans brake converters. All of them have HD stator Sprag, and a forged or billet cover. HD 7/16 mounting hardware.

    Email me a dyno sheet, and what stall your thinking about, and we can go from there. Everything is custom built.

    thanks

    Im gonna say 99% aggressive street driven....
    I know he wants it dynoed afterwards, and will most likely try drag racing too.
