since the b20b engine was put in my 544 it performs with overpower for the original gear ratio (transmission and or rear end). I feeel it could operate at say instead of 1st it could be like maybe somewhere between 1st and second then follow this ratio right to 4th.Right now no problem leaving the line in 2nd and at the top end have no problem accelerating<br>quickly from 55 mph.Also the car needs front shocks any suggestions on brand and cost verus benifiets.<br>thank you [email protected]
