what gears for the maverick

I am building my maverick into a drag car. It will have a 10.5-1 347 .550 lift cam, rhs 215cc heads, victor jr and 780 holley. It will have a c4 with a 3500 stall. It will be a 9 inch rear. I am planning on going with 4.88 or 5.13 gears. It will be an 1/8 mile only car. I am wanting to go threw the traps at roughly 7000 rpm on a 26 inch tall tire

Without knowing how much power the engine makes(dyno) and how heavy the car is there is no way to nail this down closer than you already have. If you have a mph you intend to try to run through the traps at, then you can get a closer answer- 105 mph would need a 5.13, 111 mph would need a 4.88 based on your 7000 rpm target.
