For most with a 4 speed I think a 3.31 and a wide ratio would be a better street trans.
The Close ratio in a parking lot you are on and off the clutch pedal as the 1st gear speed is pretty fast but I can live with it as the acceleration from a stop light is incredible. Long legs and they go all the way up.
I took the car to the 1/4 mile drag strip and made a few passes I was at the traps in 3rd gear at 6000rpm. I shifted but could of finished the 1/4mile in third gear as the engine was still pulling.
Not that this is a drag car.
