Is he setting it up for racing, or as a daily driver? If he's primarily racing it, then, yes, I'd go with the looser converter and have fun with it at the track. But if it's street driven primarily I'd tighten it up and make better use of the bottom end of the torque curve around town, especially in such a heavy car. If guys use 60' times and ET's to determine their optimum stall speed, they'll end up with a converter that's looser than it needs to be for daily driven purposes every time.
I'm sorry, but 212/224 is just not that large of a camshaft, and 6200 is not that big of a number. Maybe I've just been in circle track racing too long... I'm sure it runs great, and is exactly what he intended to build. It looks to be pretty decent setup, but it just doesn't need that much converter.
Just my experiences...
