Resonant frequency is 1/(2.pi.sqrt(LC)) where sqrt is square root and pi is, well, pi. Use simple algebra to get the value of C3 from f and L2. More at

ps - I make that just under 1uF, or 963nF to be exact.

pps - I'd use a 1uF capacitor, non-polarised of course, and, if things are tweaky, tune by adjusting either the 17kHz or the value of L2.
