I was given a new Currie 8" rear end with a 2.79 ratio(ring 39 teeth, 14 pinion teeth) a while back and I think it may not work for what I what. The reason is because I have a rebuilt 350 engine with a 282 degree cam, stroker kit, with about 350-400 horsepower along with a 350 turbo transmission with about a 2500 stall, and I was told that the car would have a sluggish start because of the rear ratio. I'm not too educated in this field, but I am trying build a cruiser with not too crazy of a start that will be comfortable on the freeway. The question is if I should keep the 8" and change the gears or just get a whole new rear end for my 48 Chevy. Thanks in advance for the advice.
