gears, transmission, and rpms...

I'm trying to figure out what kind of rpm range I can expect to be running in with my set up...

I currently have 3.73 gears in my rear end...

A friend of mine gave me what he thought was a TH350, but turned out to be a 700R. I purchased the transmission rebuild kit and stall converter for the TH350. I'm really reluctant to do the body modifications needed to get the 700R to mount correctly, so I'm leaning towards the TH350.

The stall I purchased is a B&M Holeshot 3000 (2800-3200 rpm operating range) because that's the range Summit Tech Support told me my cam (Edelbrock 7102) would call for and work best in. My original intent was to get a stall around the 2500 to 2700 rpm range. The rpm range on the cam is supposed to be 1500-6500, again, the guys at Summit told me I should expect better performance out of the afore mentioned B&M stall converter than I would out of a lower rpm'd stall converter...

I'd like to know what kind of RPM range I'm looking at for operations and any other relevant information that could be provided. I'd like to get as much input as possible so I can make the best decision...

Thanks for any and all input...

Forgot to mention the size of the rubber that is currently on the car...

215/65/14...

I've already decided to get new wheels since one of the OEM rims is rusted and warped; 20 inch wheels are the largest I'm willing to go. I figure that will give me a little bit of play with the rpms, although I'm not sure how much...

check the 700r4 with a 3:73 thread in this section, I linked to a calculator that will figure it.
