(gear ratio x 336 x mph) / tire diameter gives you rpm. A little tinkering with the equation gives mph from the other items. WIth your setup you would be running, by gearing alone, you could theoretically reach around 190mph. Would you really be able to take the car up that fast though?

maybe I am not doing something right for the mph formula because it says my car will go 192 mph with 2.41 gears and th350. I dont know maybe it will but I very seriosly doubt it. It would be nice though

that sounds about right, actually, whether or not you have an engine with enough power toget you to that speed is another story entirely.
