You want to match the gear to the engine, transmission, and vehicle weight, as well as projected use for the vehicle, and tires... and your personal preferences.

A 2.73:1 gear would be a good versatile gear for an engine with plenty of low end torque, in a light vehicle, with a deep 1st gear and small (normal) street tires, and no overdrive, used mostly for cruising... IMO. Depending on the setup, you could spin tire or hook up, and still have low highway RPM without overdrive either way.
