Not a race engine? So you shift at what... 6500 rpms?
Maybe you should try 4.11-4.30:1
4.56 might be too low.
I have 33's on the back of my truck, and my motor is 6500 rpm max.
I had 4.56 in my Ford 9" to start with, and it was TOO LOW.
I got 4.11's in it now, and they are perfect for what I do. ( street / strip )
Of course, I have a hella-torquey bigblock up front, so I can pull a taller gear with ease.

|vinniekq2||doesnt sound like a drag race engine?why not use a compromise ratio or race it as it is?|

I'm gonna say start with 4.56 and see if that would be a happy medium for ya.
If you go lower, you won't like the street RPM's.
If you go taller, you will just run slower track times.
It's a trade-off.
