first off, what are you doing with the car? Is it a street cruiser, street/strip, etc. All that has to do with the proper gear. If you are looking for just street cruising, very mild engine mods like headers, intake, carb, and a real mild cam then I would suggest 3.73. If your going to the track and doing a little racing, and the car is not your daily driver, go a little steeper like a 4.10. You will also have to take your tire size into consideration too. The taller the tire, the more you cut your gear down. Hope this helps.
