    well I am finally gonna get a new rear end for my car the last thing I need to decide is gears

    76 mm turbo
    3500 stall its probably too high but that is what I have for now

    How much do you want to drive it on the street and how much do you want to drag it? If you want to drag more than street, get at least 3.73s.

    Go with the 3.50's.....I have 3.50's in mine and they are just fine....go too high and you'll spool your turbo too soon...
