Even 3:42's would be good with your M22 and 205 tires. They did real well in my 2+2 with an M22, and 421 cu. in. It purred on the hwy and still kicked butt on the street/strip. It didn't have all the power you have either.

Well I came up with the gear I want and it is gong to be 3.73. Since that is the only 3-series gear available for a 4-Series Carrier. I also calculated my tire height of 28 inch, trans. gear and speed of 60 mph. and I will run down the road at 2700 rpm. That will work great for me. Cole why do you not have your car on the road? You better get that beast back out there with the boys. Just think of all the fun you are cheating yourself out of!! Life is to short so get it rolling.
