Use this calculater to figure gear ratio and engine rpm's.

http://www.ringpinion.com/Calc_RPM.aspx

This is not an O/D engine. it's going to want revs and to gear it for proper driving with an O/D then 1st will be so low it will never see it. Best bet with this much build would be a th400.

I don't have links figued out but copy and paste to browser if it doesn't work.

That's a Detroit 671. I wouldn't bother with trying to convert it for a blower on your street car. By the time you buy the bearing plates, front cover, rotor pinning kit, and conversion kit you are around 900 smackers. Then you add in the front drive and intake manifold and you start nearing 2K. Then you have to polish it. I converted the one in my project journal. I spent over a year sourcing parts and polishing. I WOULD NOT DO IT AGAIN. However, the most important reason is that a non teflon tipped 671 on a BBC is a waste of time. You would have to overdrive it to make boost and the benefits would be negated by the extra heat.
If you want a blower get an 871 complete and ready to go. Sell that huffer to guy wanting to build a rat rod.


Good Luck
