Need help deciding which gear to use???
I am undecided on which gear to switch to. I have a 63 Ford galaxie, with a 289 (195 HP) and a C4 trans. The car came with 14 inch tires originally, however its been switched to 17's and lowered 3 inches. Unfortunately with the small motor and 3:25 gear and 17 inchs rims the car has no torque so im changin it to either a 3:50 or 3:70. Please help, i dont want over kill, i still want to be able to cruise aT 70 for a bit if nec. But I also want to twist the tires a bit and get some off the line. Im hoping to buy a 390 to drop in , but its a ways off. Anyone know of one?
