Cool

I believe what it says is he has a 355 with a 3.55 rar end that tachs out at 4500 at 90 mph. Do I want to change to a 12 bolt with 3.07 or 3.73 gears? Which ratio will give me the best acceleration or top end? "It's called dyslexia!!" Now my advice 70nova is to go with the 3.07 for the top end and lower engine speed.
