Wink What gear ratio should I use

I have a 1949 Chevy truck. Iam going to put in a 305 SBC (it was free!). Iam going to try to get as much power out of it as I can. I plan on using a TH350 or Th400 with a 1:1 3rd gear. I will be doing some interstate driving but would also like a good sink in the seat feeling at take off. What would be a ideal gear ratio for 1st and second gear and then for the rear end that will give me both interstate driving and the kick in the pants at take off??? Also what stall speed on the converter? Thanks for your in put!

Cool

You can check out the calculators on Randy's ring & pinion web site. <a href="http://www.ring-pinion.com/calculators.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.ring-pinion.com/calculators.shtml</a>
You can plug in tire sizes, rear end ratios, rpm etc. This will help in your decision. Good luck with your project.
