I have spent a lot of money beefing a TH350 a couple of years ago,
should have done a 700R with overdrive, but to late. So my question is
can a TH350 be modified to the TH350C that has the electric lock up
torque converter. That way in a perfect would I could drop the RPM by
500 is my understanding on the freeway.
It doesn't matter how good your trans was put together..... the torque
converter does have a certain amount of slippage. That is the whole reason
lock up converters became the norm. Since you have a TH350 which doesn't use
a lock up converter an RV converter is the next best thing.

This is true though it is a very small amount with a locking
converter. If you want to calculate your actual slippage you can try
the link below. Also non locking stock converters get at "tight" as
they are going to get above 2500 RPM or so.
