Ok Chuck has brought up a question that honestly I didn't even think about. So how do you figure this out???

I have a new motor going together and I had hope to get it dynoed but would like to go ahead and figure this present combo out......

My suggestion is to call the converter manufacturer you plan to use and get input from them.  

If you got dyno sheets, then they can use that info to spec you a verter.  

Without dyno sheets the next best thing is logs from your data logger.  On mine I'm having BTE set the stall about 200RPM below the fall back RPM at the shift, which will be about 6200 RPM for my engine.

A comp engine builder suggested to me you take the best average HP over a 1200 RPM range, the bottom RPM is your stall point, the top is your shift point. This is usually 200-400RPM over peak torque for the stall and the same over peak HP for the shift point.
