I'm running 4:11's, but we don't have the freeways most of you guys have to deal with. Let's see, 4:11's, 31" tire, 3200 stall, yep, right about 3 to 5 mpg, but it'll jump right out from under ya.

gear qus?

i think if your running a big block and alot of torque you need to give the engine enough room to use the torque. So in my opinion its only my opinion but a 3 series like 342 but 373 would be as deep as i would go if i had a small block freeway driving never happened, by that i mean all my driving under 55 or 60 and that is running tight 4 series all the way there cool at the light. Big blocks dont like the rpm's unless you really spend some money and then its a whole new monster hooking it up! good luck
