if I were to get the 5.0L 345hp crate engine from ford. I'd like to stick with an automatic.

Also, to avoid some computer and wiring hassels, I would go with a carb.

Just thinking and scheming rigth now. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Pick your weapon according to your application and needs.
For street/strip use, the converter should have a stall speed about 1,000 RPMs below your engines max torque rpm point. (if your engine develops peak torque at 3500 RPMs, get a 2500 rpm stall converter)
Make sure you get a converter for near your engines power range.
If you get a 2500 rpm converter for a engine that runs 200-300 HP, and put it behind a engine that ir developing 450-550HP. its real stall speed will be well above 2500. The same works the other way also. A 2500 rpm converter for a 500 HP engine will stall at a lower RPM if put behind a 200 HP engine.

The price goes up fast!
