Make HP and gear accordingly

That is the adage of a famous Corvette tuner,although I can't remember which one.Make the horsepower but have the gear to get you movin' at low rpm.If you alredy have a 3.90 gear and 5 speed the only way to get more gearing at a cost effective price is to swap tranny input shafts this way your effective gearing can be changed as if the rear end was a 4.37 or 4.65(in first three gears and 5th ;4th is unaffected due to 1:1) .I've posted this before so i wont go into the details.But the bottom line is it works and allows the use of big cams which kill low rpm torque but make killer HP.So, make HP and gear accordingly. Later,norm
