stall or timing

K guys i finally got to take my cutlass down the road. And incase you dont remember what im running here it is
piston:KB119-.100 solid/-0.5 effective head volume w/ full floating wrist pins
Heads: stock 350 heads what ever came on the 69 chevelle 350, i think 76cc
Induction: holley 600 double pmper weiand accelerater intake
Cam: Lunati 300/300 adv. dur. w/ 515/515 lift bracket master 2
crank: eagle nodular, stock everything
rods:GM 5.7
deck: stock
fel-pro 350 overhual kit for gaskets, nuthing special
TH-400 stage 2
not positive on the gear, but i think its 3.08

my first mistake is that i have a T/C, i know i need around a 3000-3500 stall for that cam but i didn't have the money to buy one and i just couldn't wait to see what the motor was gonna do. bottom end it's a dog, I can't even get it to spin the tires, if i hold the brake. what do i need to do, keep playin with the timing? get a bigger carb, or is the stall my whole problem? Top end she'll fly, but it's just like i can't get any rpms out of the take off. please help

gears

I figured my gears were'nt low enough, i think they're 308's but not sure. I had a 350 in this same car before and it was bored 80 over with stock heads and cam and it'd roast the tires all the way down the block. I know this motor is making more power than the other one, but why wont it even spin the tires. if i go with a 33-3500 stall converter, will that help?? I'm gonna get to the rear end eventually but i'm on kind of a tight budget with a 3 month old baby. I also have access to a b&m tork master 2500, which one would be better for me?

The larger 246*@.50 Dur. 108LS Lunati cam has moved the power band/rpm much higher than the stock cam. That's what happened to your bottom end torque & tire spinning. The Higher converter stall will help. I'd use the 33-3500rpm stall and a trans cooler.

trans cooler/ A/C condensor coil

I've been doing a little brain storming, and i cant think of a good place to mount a tranny cooler. Now just hear me out before you say your oppinion.
My car used to have A/C it doesn't any more, i removed all of it and blocked off the fire wall. I still have the condensor coil laying in my garage. I'm thinking of getting rid of my flex fan, and installing a dual 14" electric fans with a thermostat. each fan is supossed to be pulling 1600 cfm so i think it's keep my radiator nice and cool, esspecially cruising. my ? is if i clean that A/C condensor out really good, say flush it with gas, then water, then purge it with tranny fluid, could i re-install it back in front of the radiator like it was stock but have it as a transmission cooler instead? what do you think guys, remember its just a thought at this point.
