    Sooo my wheels and tires are in sooner than I expected. American Racing Renegades and Trxus MT's. Anyway I won't be able to throw new gears in for a couple of weeks anyway. How sluggish is this setup for the real world? Oh yeah we're talking about a tired 350 TBI. Thanks guys.

    Just wait until you get the new gears installed. You'll probably mock it up to look at it anyways but it's gonna be REAL slow. Hope you've got a twin stick...rear wheel drive low range might come into play. :D

    That's what I've got right now. It's not that bad, but I have a fresh motor.

    I would say mathematically and seat of the pants, it is the same as 3.08s and 33s.

    I have 37's on my 90 with 3.73's and it cruises fine. I never use OD until I'm over 80 on the speedo (91 on the GPS) and the cool thing is that I can do 70 up grades in second that I couldn't hold 60 with the 32's in third. I have the 5.13's on the shelf and one day will get them in.

    Thanks for the info guys. I figure 5.13's is the way I'll be going too, I just haven't decided if I should bother throwing them into my front 10bolt and see how long that lasts or limp along with 3.73's until I can afford a D60. I'll be picking the wheels and tires on Tuesday and doing A LOT of fender trimming!
