I would go absolutely no larger than 2800 with that camshaft. 2400-2600 would work even better for a daily driver.
A few years ago I had a '94 Impala SS with a long rod 383 and a CC503 cam. I ran a 2400 rpm converter in that one. That was a great setup for a daily driver. It had great driveability, but would flash more than enough to get up into the meat of the torque curve when necessary. If I had been interested in drag racing it, then a looser converter would have made more sense, but then again, so would more camshaft...and different heads...and more compression...and yada yada yada...
Again, guys over-cam and over-stall their setups all too often... Choose a converter that works with YOUR engine setup and application, not something you read about on some forum somewhere...
