HI ALL
Well I order my rear end a Detroit true-track now I need to make a gear seletion... heres what I have..
466 aprox. 450 to 500 hp./tq. w/C6
truck weight 4500 lbs.
I beleve my tire size is around 29" I do want to go to a bigger tire eventualy like 31"..
it had 370's in it but its to low. Here are what the shop guy suggested (he is a drag racer) 323 or 350. I don't want it to be a dog off the line.. He said the differance would be like power at 1' off the line or 5' . I do some Freeway driving but mostly in town. I do plan on draging it some.
Thanks
Tim

HAY JAM thanks
I kind of thought about that I started to order the 323's but thought if I go to bigger tires thats realy going to put it closer to 300's and I was purity sure it might be a dog with the 300's in it..
anyone else

Holy crap I just checked my tire size and there only 26" no wonder my RPM were up so high.. I thought they were atleast 29's..
What is the 1st gear ratio of a stock F-250 C-6??
Thanks
