based on your numbers, the rear end ratio would be more like 3.22.

Anyway, the Tremec TKO with .82 OD would have you at about 2009 rpm at 60, as Gary pointed out.

here's the formula.

are you sure your mph is correct ? taking measurement from a gps ? or your speedometer ?
"After jumping into an early lead, Miles pitted for no reason. He let the entire field go by before re-entering the race. The crowd was jumping up and down as he stunned the Chevrolet drivers by easily passing the entire field to finish second behind MacDonald's other team Cobra. The Corvette people were completely demoralized."
