Friend of mine is beefing up a 69 F100.  This is a cruise-in and burnout truck.  Not a daily driver. 

He plans on putting in a 347 - in the 450hp area.

It has a C4.

What stall converter or what other info do you need?

Lots more information.

Weight, gearing, tire size, and engine specifics.

In general a 10" will likely be okay, if its built right.

There no reason not to call one of the better companies when the trucks specifics are more concrete. Most of these places can turn out a converter pretty quick. IRC, I had mine from PTC in less than a week.

Minimum 10" 3000-3500 stall. May get away with a good 8" 4000-4500 stall it just depends. Just for comparison my old stock camshaft 1989 Mustang had a 10" 3800 stall(C-4), it worked great with 3.55 gears............total daily driver even through the winter. Don't fear the converter.

Yes, perfectly normal. The stall rpm is the converters expected flash rpm.
