I'd have a couple of choices, with those 3.70 rear gears..........The 5 speed for the overdrive on the highway. But, you may be sacrificing a bit of strength.

My other would be an M21 Muncie.........with the close ratio gears. An M22, or Saginaw has a pretty steep 1st gear, which with those gears you don't need.

T10 is pretty much the same as an M21

Check out this site on 5 speed spec's http://www.richmondgear.com/01pdfs/pages25-27.pdf
Also correct me if I'm wrong I thought the m20 had the deeper 1st gear (2.52)and the m21,m22 had the same 2.20 1st gear with the m22 being the heavy duty model? http://www.5speeds.com/muncie2.htm

Saginaws could be had with one of four different gearsets. Low gears available were 2.54, 2.85, 3.11, and 3.50.

Muncie M-20 low gear was 2.52, M-21 & M-22 both had 2.20.

Borg-Warners ranged from 2.20 to 3.42.

I personally wouldn't use a 2.2 low gear with 3.70 gears because you'd have to slip the clutch excessively when starting off from a dead stop. I'd divide 9.5 by whatever axle ratio I had, and make that my low limit (numerically). And that's with 25.5" tires on a 3200# car. Adjust to a proportionally higher number if using taller tires or if the vehicle is heavy.

If you want to spend the $$$$$ a Tremec TKO600 will handle the power you mentioned and with a 3.70 rear gear will give a good low end punch and the OD will let you cruise easily at highway speeds..
