You'll be around 3000 RPM at highway speeds, so yeah, it'll be loud that way, but gear whine wouldn't be that bad . . .

I kept my stock gears in my 1968, my cousin did 4.11s -his car was intolerable on the highway.


Again, you've got to go back to goals.

If you want around 300 hp, an 8.8 would be overkill, you can use the remaining $2000-2300 from doing gears and girdle on the 7.5" and get a pretty good port polish, cam, subframe connectors, and other items on your list . . .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
