Depends on what your trap speed is, what you are turning the motor to, and how efficient your converter is...

With my old stock headed 346 setup I was running 4.10's with a TH400...very tight and efficient neal chance converter...

Crossing through the traps around 7200rpm at 142 mph...

Is that 4500 stall with it on the converter or your just saying its a 4500 stall in general?

I would say it would be close with that converter and a 4.10, you would need to tighten it up alittle.
