Is the motor going into a boat or aircraft or is strictly an off-road motor? If this is a street driver, then you have screwed the pooch.

Stock to mild aftermarket cam, 12 degrees. Total 36-38 depending on chamber size and shape, all in by 2800-3000.

Bull Hockey. If you don't know the exact static compression ratio as determined by measuring all components, then you have no idea what cam the motor wants. You have screwed the pooch.

If this is a stock converter, it will not stall at 2000. You have screwed the pooch again.
