i have a street/strip 351w, comp cams extreme cam, roush 200 heads, speed demon, and 3000 stall torque converter.

the tires are hoosier: 29x11

what ratio gears should i get?, i was thinking 4.56 or 4.86

i want good acceleration, and i want to smoke the tires with a tap of the pedal.
ha ha ha
please help thanks a lot

strip/street.....i wouldn't go with 4.86's....4.56 would be the highest gear I would use, but my thoughts are the 4.30's for good street and strip performance....get some large/tall tires for street and some short slicks for the strip...

most hipo ford's came with either 3.91's or 4.30's in the 60's and 70's....

i recently installed 4.11 gears instead of 3.00 (running a 351C with 4speed toploader and 295/50/15 rear), and sure, i dont have any problems burning tires, but it's not so much fun going 60mph and reving 3200rpm .. lots of noise ..

and since i have a welded dif it isn't hard to do donuts either .. hehe it yust spins round and round ...
