first gear = 2.97:1
with a 3.75 reargear that im leaning towards,
gives me a 1st gear ratio of 11.13.
second is a 2.1:1
3rd is a 1.46
4th is a 1:1
5th is a .74:1
and the final is .5:1

according to the other magnum with a final drive of .63:1
i have the close ratio

with a billet steel flywheel

i may want to get a taller gear..
what do you guys think?

and yes a aluminum driveshaft is a must. i dropped some serious coin on this car, and im not going to be a cheap a*$ on anything on this car.

i appreciate all of your guys's help!
