Optimizing V6 performance, Infront of a T-400 TRANS.

Im having alot of trouble with such things as stall rpm and gears. My poor 231cu 3.8l buick v6 motor just doesent make alot of power, not to mention it has to pull my 82 chevy truck around, now with a TH400 trans. Im hoping this doesent turn out to be as big of a negative deal as everyone is saying. What are the best things i can do to help the motor? Im confused if a higher or lower stall rpm would be good, gears? Any upgrades i can do to the trans to ease the drag?
I should mention the th400 is out of the truck still, never installed. Waiting on torque converter choice. My TH-200 finally bit the bullet.
