I have to admit I know next to nothing on gear ratio's. I've installed a 10 bolt, donor was an '81 Camaro. Yes, I could identify the rear end and then ask my question. I'm assuming that year of Camaro, non-positraction, came with one ratio as standard. Again, assuming that I'm correct, what should I expect for average driveability...obeying the speed limit most of the time?! This will be coupled to a 1995 Buick Roadmaster 350 LT1 with a 4L60E tranny.

You probably have around a 3.73 ratio??? I run a 350 and a 305 with the 700R4, which is like the 4L60E, and with the overdrive they run smooth like a spinning top.....I'm running a 37 pickup, lightweight, and a 52 half ton panel. Go for it. You won't be disappointed.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

What is the standard gear ratio for a 1995 Buick Roadmaster? Thats how you need to gear it, the 700R4 and 4L60E should have similar overdrives.
