I think you will be happier with the 3000 stall. Actually, if it was me, I would call a GOOD converter company and tell them the specs you just told us. My car is lighter, has more gear, and and about the same amount of cam as you and I'm running an EDGE 3700 converter.
There is NO way your car is going to be happy with a 2500 stall converter.

I, myself, would recommend either Edge, or PI. I didn't like my TCI and I don't know much about B&M or Hughes.
Call Edge or PI and give them your specs and they will recommend the correct stall speed for you.
Edge has a website where you can also enter your specs and it will give you a recommendation.

Thanks guys. how about a rear gear recommendation to hopefully squeeze this beast into the high 13's or low 14's? (28" tires)

ok I will be going with 4.11's then. Do you think that my setup will be able to move my car into the high 13's?

My calculator estimates that you will need about 310-320 RWHP to get that heavy car into the 13.75 range. You should be close.
I still think you might need a little more than 3000 stall with that weight.
I would guess about 3500 stall. Don't take my word for it though. I would call one of those converter places and ask them.
Get the right one the first time so you don't end up doing another converter swap.........like I did!
