Here I am trying to cut a corner for the budget, sbf street car conversion to bbf, no validated weight number as of yet, it has never been scaled only a best guess. Next add a bbf and no true measure of hp only a best guess, finally add the juice and only... yes a best guess. Do I slap it together and flywheel dyno it, scale it and fill in the blanks, or slap it together and install a known good converter and chassis dyno and scale it, or slap it together with a good known converter hit the track make a few passes and make...wait for it ...my best guess at the converter. I usually have more info, and dyno time is limited and expensive in these parts, and I just want it to be in the zone, not going for the #1 plate so to speak. (hillbilly icon)

If it is at least a 9" converter, I would go with option 2. Install it and get to the track and get some data. Are there any stampings on the converter?

Slap the 10" in and hit the track. If you don't like it go from there. Cool
