I have a small block 500hp, turbo 350 trans, 2500 stall converter, ford 9", 26" tall rear tires and a 4:30 ratio. It is spinnin' too many rpm crusin.

What gears do you think I should use? I am thinking about a 3:73 to be able to cruise and still drag race??????????? Thanks

i went from a 4.11 to 3.55's and ive never been happier..with a th350 it still pulls real good and smokes the tires but also hums on the highway..

or you could buy a gearvenders overdrive unit they handle up to 1000 hp
