haha its cool man. I've been doing the same thing as you. I'm in college myself, so Its been a gradual work in progress. Ive collected the Patriot Heads and some Flowtech long tubes w/ 3" ORY.
The cam I'm getting custom ground to any specs I want (224r) and the gears I'm purchasing on build day as well. The Performance shop that I'm having build it had me put a $1000 down payment on the work. Now I owe 1650 plus cost of the fore-mentioned parts (Cam+Gears)

I think you have a misunderstanding of how a stall works or feels. 3500 rpm doesn't mean that it takes that much to get the car moving. My loose 3500 starts moving by 1000 rpm or less probably. At the track when I was using the foot brake the car would start pushing through the brakes ~2200 rpm. Ever drove a car with a slipping trans? That's kinda how it feels. The car moves like it normally would but takes a little more rpm. Once the stall locks up such as on the freeway it acts exactly like your stocker.
Where you gain at from a stall is it gets you into the sweet part of your rpm band quicker and keeps you there with "shift extension". Know how your rpms drop way down right after a shift? Doesn't happen with a higher stall....they stay up in the sweet spot.
