a 454 isnt really a high winding motor, unless ofcourse you intsall an ls-7 or L-88 cam. you are mush better off with a 3.73 or 3.52 gearing, winding 3500 rpm on the highway will spoil all the fun of a big block camaro, it will also have a top speed of arround 85mph as the motor will be reving dangerusly high. it will however be very very quick in the 1/8 mile.

stick with 3,73 at the most
