torque converter

hi everyone,
after the engine and transmission swap (350-th350), i saw that the trans shift on third after 75 feet.
i've used a stock torque converter for the max low end torque but with a 5.99:1 diff ratio and an 280 hp Engine it's probably too much.
i'm considering to get it off and replace with a new one but i don't know too much about stall speed.
probably a 3000+ converter should be better but i want to hear that form you!
thank you in advance.

What cam are you using? What's the power band if the cam? That tells alot about what torque converter to get. I think 5.99 gears is a bit much, yeah!

You could probably use a governor recalibration kit too. It wiil help lengthen the time and speed that the transmission shifts at. With those rear gears I'm suprised it takes 75ft to hit 3rd.

thank you for the reply guys...
sorry i'm forgot some detail, the cam is the Edelbrock 2102 performer plus and there's a trans-go shift kit in the transmission, i've took off the little spring in the modulator but seems to be the same thing as before.
i don't pretend to have the perfect shift but just a little better, my idea is to grab a new converter eith something like a 3000+ stall, so what's your opinion?
thank you again.

The 2102 cam is recommended for Idle-5500rpm. You shouldn't need 3000 stall unless you plan to get a much larger cam. A stock stall should work geat with the 2102 cam. What type car do you have the 350/Th350 in? What do you intend to use it for?
