In stop and go traffic its next to useless, so I guess it depends on where you drive.
Well here the speed limit is 100KPH (62MPH) you can cruise @ 110-115 (70MPH)

The supercharged 350 gets the job done and cruises fine with a mid 3 gear.
Over drive does not add value to it. Just cost, better spent on the blower, it self.

A high performance motor does not like to cruise at a low low rpm.

On this car with 31" rubber you can cruise @2800rpm @75MPH with 3.55's and a th350 and 3000 stall.
It will GLH.
