I have a 2.66 first with a 4.30 rear gear and a 25 inch tall tire. Seems to work really well. The redblock doesnt seem to have the low end tq to have a lower ratio for the take off. Track car only? cuz 4th gear is going to suck on the highway!

Hi

I see a coolant pipe running into the welsh plugs on the engine. What are you going to do with the cooling are you going with a external water pump ????
