get 3.7's, 3.45s wont be worth it, im gonna get 3.7's when i save up some cash, with 3.45s at 100ks it will be sitting at around 1950 with 3.7's around 2100.

use this to work it out http://kowboy1.bananaman.com/xycool/gearhead.swf and with this program you need to put in the transmission gear ratio to get the proper calculation , for auto these are the ratios

1st 3.06
2nd 1.63
3rd 1
4th 0.7
