3.07 Gears With A 4spd?

My original 12 bolt is a 3.07, I'm converting to a M20, I know these gears are on the high side but with the lower 1st gear in the M20 is there any chance it will be acceptable or should I just go to 3.55's while I have the car apart? this is just a stock L48 I'm not out to drag race I just want a street car.

With the wide ratio M20 the 3.07 should be fine. Will do real good on the highway thats for sure. mark

The car will run and move. First gear will last a long time and it won't be as easy to spin tire as it would with a lower rear gear like 3.55 or 3.73 but you can always change rear gears later. As Mark said, Definitely good on the highway.

Dean it's pretty much what I'm running with a 3.08 and wide ratio M20.. I can still spin the tires too. Freeway driving is nice, first is a bit long winded and intown driving is typically between 2nd and third and fourth if the speed zone is 45.
