Another stall question with specs.

Ok so I have a 351C bored over .030 9.5 compression with an advertised cam specs of 1500-4000 rpm - 204/214 duration@50 and a lift of .484/.510. I have a edelbrock 650 on a performer manifold with the 2bbl heads and a mallory unlite dist. it is bolted up to a c4 with a shift kit and 3.00 gears and 26 inch tires in a 3660lb car. it bogged real bad off the line if it hooked up but would light em up and go nowhere if it broke loose. I put a 2500 stall in it now it is reall sluggish clear through the power band and my shifts are mushy. is my stall to high for my setup. I am going to put a 3.73 gear in it with a power trax trac lok. should I leave the stall in or put my stock one back in. I almost feel like I really only need the gear now and not the stall with it. I am afraid I will be losing some of my power band. I am so cornfused now with all the differences and am not sure about how to match everything up. I dont want to pull the converter again but I think it might be the best setup 3.73 and no stall converter. also I am running about 300 hp and 350tq. I really need some guidance here. and hopefull with all the data here one of you gurus can direct me. thanks again

Your peg legged 3.00 geared axle is not doing you any good for what you seem to want it to do.
Go with the 3.73's, the trac lock, and leave the stall converter in there.

You realized what was wrong and formulated your own workable solution, I would stick to that plan.
