Thanks for the link to those other threads Cycleguy,
I wasn't very clear with my question. I have the TKO with the .64 already. I use 5th gear as an overdrive for fwy cruising. It suits me quite well. If I was tracking and needed to use it as a driving gear for high speed I think the .82 would be a better choice. As it is the jump from 4th to 5th is pretty long but I can comfortably cruise along at 70-80 between 1800-2100 RPM.

I was looking for opinions on the 445 in a cobra. I was happy with the 390 and hope the 445 is a nice economical boost in power. I already have the heads, intake and carb. I have been driving this car for 13 years now and thought a little added spirit would be more funer.

Thanks again,
John
