Drag race Build Review and advice

Hi Guys,

I am redoing my street legal 89 hatch and it will be a bad *&^% race\street car. It will have a 532 D1 460 block, 80 over, scat crank H beam rods, flat top pistons, comp cam solid lifter with 650-660 lift. With dove heads it should see about 650 hp. Pretty wild :-).

Below is my current setup. I currently have a TCI 2800 stall but don't think that will do. The car is going to be mostly strip but will see some street when I can afford the gas :-). What Torque Converter and stall would you all recomend?


I currently have:
89 GT Hatch
5 lug conversion
Welded Frame connectors
2 inch hooker headers
RPM air gap intake
D0VE Heads
MSD

A single plane intake will probably be better for you.

If you can dyno the motor after it gets put together and see where your torque peake is. Then get a torque converter to match. That would be the best way to do it. If you can't do that then you are probably looking at about a 4200 RPM to 4500 RPM stall converter.
