Yes the 3000 stall is fie and exactly what you want.
When I drag raced this exact engine combo I shifted at 5000 rpm.
I used a 10" 3600 stall and 4.10's street strip drive it everywhere.
Get sticky tires so you have traction. M/T or BFG stickys. P235-60-15 4.10 gears
if you want to fab. make your own Caltracs.
