3200 - 3600 range is what you want depending on your cam choice.

I run an FTI 3200 (bolt on mods) and believe me I don't want anything more aggressive for the street. It's ridiculous. Nail the gas and all hell breaks loose.

There are a couple of threads in the transmission & driveline section of the forum with some good info.

Know what cam first, IMHO cam n TC go hand in hand IMHO.

Cam choice will determine stall speed.

IMO 3400/3600 is not ideal for a daily driver.

Gearing will effect drive ability of the converter setup too. It's good to know an approx power number then spec a converter to match.

Yes.

Do both at the same time. Choose a cam that meets your needs in what you are looking for out of your car then match the TC to the cam.
