id go for a 3.9 or 4.11 diff and get a Wade 1673 cam. The short diff ratio should make up for the power loss down low if there is any with that cam, or you could vernier gear and bring the power band back a bit with the 1673 so you wont lose anything downlow and it will kick in harder then the 1636.

has already been said, shorter diff gears and a cam. Either 1636 or 1673 if going diff gears shorter than 3.7/or a stall.
