    3.73s.

    But first what kinda driving do you do? Do you hope to visit the track or do you allready do so? Do you plan to add a supercharger or turbo down the road?

    HAHAHAHA, Sounds like the modular guys.
    4.10 or 4.30s?

    Don't fear the gear.

    Nice one Chris - I am SO sick of that stuff (esp since I am one of the very few who does not like excessive gearing).

    But since I want to fit in here, my recommendation: 6.85's if a stick and 7.27s if an automatic. The 6.85's will help you Chris since you can start out in 5th gear. :p

    NICE!! I won't ever have to shift while racing! Of course, I can only do 10mph, but I'll get there QUICK! I'd be churning 4200rpms at 70mph in 5th!

    I'd be curious to know the answer to this, and for that matter, roughly what speeds would be achieved at 4000 & 6000rpm in each gear?
