Ok I'm gonna be ordering my torque converter soon and I need a 2500 stall lock up converter, (I'm not gonna be racing my car it's just gonna be a fun street car) now question is when a torque converter says 2400-2800 stall does that mean that 2400 stall will be the lowest it flashes and 2800 will be the highest , but pending on my motors power range it will flash between 2400 and 2800rpms ?......

The 2400-2800 RPM rating is a rough estimate of where your convertor will stall to depending upon the torque your engine makes in that range.

A rough estimate of your actual stall speed can be had by holding the foot brake and applying the throttle until the back tires break loose. Note the RPM at which this happens and that gives you a rough idea of the "stall" speed (RPMs) for your car.

I was told by a few guys to go 300-500rpms higher then the base rpms of the cam I'm using!

That sounds like it should work just fine for you.
