Post 350 engine miss

i have a chevy 350 engine i just put in s 78 firebird. im having several problems with it. i pretty much changed everything out at once this summer. i put a lunati 292 dur .480/.480 cam, victor jr. intake, edelbrock 600 cfm carb, tfs twisted wedge heads. IT has the stock hei delco distributor and i set the intial timing at 12. i bought a so called 3000 stall at a swap meet. also added 3.73 gears. The 2 problems are i can't idle the thing down to hear my lopey cam because when i put it in gear the car stalls. the car just lunges forward like my regular tork converter. and if i dont have enough rpms and i floor it the car will start to stall out . above 2500 rpms it runs well. any help will be appreciated.
