back again! Anyone know of ideal diff gear ratio for my el fairmont 5ltr? Already have the 3.45 lsd, but i'm after better take off on the line, but dont want it to affect highway cruising. Will changing the gears affect speedo reading?

Thanks again!

I got 3.45 gears in mine and I wouldnt change it.
Its doing 2000rpm @ 100kph. Changing it for better acceleration would start to hurt the fuel economy. Its already doing 8-10L / 100k on the freeway.
