I'm using the edlebrock rpm performer intake with a 770 street avenger. I double-checked the cam specs at .050; 224 int/234 exh. The lift is .544int and .569 exh. It has the older style CJ aluminum heads from Motorsports, valves 2.19 int/1.71 exh.. Maybe after truck is up and running, I'll look into a lower gear, (3.00 or 3.25). I understand I need to keep the cruising rpm above the stall speed for less slippage, is that correct? I'd like to take road trips and be able to cruise at 65-70 mph. If I win the lotto, I'd go gear vendors overdrive and maybe a 3.55 or steeper for stop light fun .....Thanks to all,
James
