I'm curious...What's the stall on your stock converter?

Where is your initial and total timing? That kind of cam will want considerably more initial timing than a stock type cam, probably at least 14~16 or more.

No, you came to the right site with the wrong attitude or wrong expectations. There is no magic bullet. 2 more initial timing will not F things up, it WILL help. Part of the reason it pulls down is stall speed, the more torque you make, the higher your stall speed goes, the more initial timing you have, short of detonation, the more torque you will make. Make sense?

I guess I'm a bit confused as to what the problem is?

It will idle down to 500 RPM in gear and wants to pull a little. Sounds normal to me.
