for 37's with a C6 auto tranny and a ford HO 5.0 V8?

I got 4.10's but I'm getting an ARB and figure it's time to swap gears at the same time.

Looks like with I'd be cruising at just over 3000 rpm at 65mph and that might be a tad high with 4.88's. Unfortunately the rig has been down for a while and I can't remember what 3k rpm feels like, and honestly I'd be doing more like 70 to 75 in the traffic around here..

5.89s and slow down on the highway. :flipoff2:

really though 3k on a 5.0 isnt that high.

3K+ sucks. Is it possible to replace your C6 with an overdrive tranny.

:confused: the damn 5.0 doesnt even start making any good power until 3k.

I'd run that motor all day long at 3800-4000

I've definatly pushed it to some hi rpm's but not cruising down the highway. I think I'll stick with the 4.88's. If it's too low maybe I just need bigger tires ;)
