3.70s are a good choice; most 6 speeds have a 3.xx 1st. I have a 2.56 1st in my Muncie with 3.70s in a 9, and it'll still spin at will(276/60-15s).haha! I debated it! I actually put 3.70's in the ford 9 with the close ratio T-56. I wanted to go for highway speeds and stuff, I want to be able to cruise and get around since I plan on using this all the time. But I do fear that maybe I'll have to go with a shorter gear in the back eventually! We'll see. I'm notching the chassis for now, since I already spent all the money on the new fuel system and everything to make it look stock. We'll see! Hopefully I can feel the Monte run again by Feb.
