The best all-round range is 3:54 to 3:70. Lower than that and you can't go very fast w/o th engine screaming and high than that and throttle response gets anemic.

What size tires are you running in the rear? And how much horsepower are you putting out(approximatly)?

I would not use the stock 4.10 from the s10 because the stock rears are not very durable, I have a 2000 s10 with the 4 banger and 90000 miles and the spider gears are showing significant wear, I would be worried if it weren't only putting out like 100 hp! hahah... but seriously, I would look into getting a 10 bolt or even a 12 bolt. You may look into the Camaro rears, they are pretty durable, and should be close to the right width.
