What are your specs - engine, cam, trans, tire height, etc...?

I have a 5 speed with overdrive - so my answer may not work for you

Like big mouse said, it depends on a lot of things.............I have 3.55s in my truck (350/350 turbo)and find them a good blend of economy and acceleration.

3.55, is a good all around. But more info on the total package(engine and trans) will help.

Hmm well i'm running a C6 and 3.55's and i really like it i can do 100-110kms and be pulling about 3400rpm wich isnt great but not too bad.. i can still pull hard past most newer cars(every one so far, cept a 450horse civic with bout 40lbs of boost or so) everyone has to loose eventualy .. even if it was only once lol

that being said i do no condone nor indulge in highway speeding
