My set-up is a SBC with TCI streefighter TH400 trans and 3000 stall.. The converter works fine when I mash the pedal and will flash to 3000.. Its allot smoother if I go to Reverse first and then quickly up to Drive.. Anything I can do?

With a 3000 stall,There's no way it should be Idling that high,It's Idling to high,That's why it's hit when you put it in gear..Make sure you don't have a bad vacuum leak.Check a few things and try to get the idle down..And you will fix the problem.The 3000 stall should take care of the big cam...
