Re: Close or wide ratio t56?

with a .5 OD, the 3.73's will effectively be 1.86. That is a A LOT of OD that will likely only ever be used on the highway.

Look at it this way, once you get up to 70 and shift into 6th, your rpms will be at 1755. Make sure your engine will like that.

I think I'd like that with my Chevelle and its smaller cam lol.
