Yea I think you'll have fun with this when your done. Take a look here for a video from my friend's LS powered 240Z at the Glen. He passes darn near everything on the track.

Sure it does, as does vehicle weight. Both will have a direct reflection on how quickly the engine spins up. As you indicate, certainly personal preference/vehicle objective is a factor as well, so you can't really make a definitive statement one way or the other.
That was kinda my point. It all depends on the purpose of the vehicle. If it's a toy car, throw some short gears in and rip it up. Just because the car will have a motor with good low-rpm torque doesn't mean it needs tall gears.

now if I could just fit 9.0 or 9.5 inch rims, it would be whiplash city.

Generally, the STA is the problem with rear tire width when it comes to moving the tires more inboard. In other words, the STA is what you'll hit before you run into anything else. Once you run out of inboard room, you can only move outboard. Rob's pics are a good point of reference. Also the MTPP has Grayson's fitment of 275s.

Here are the wheels I used. With a little more mod you can fit the 17x10w/275/40

How/why are you killing starters?

Does the electronic odometer work with the stock pick-up that came with the GTO-spec T-56?

Not killing them. Cant get them to bolt up. LOL

The GTO t56 transmission bell housing is apparently different then any other GM bellhousing and requires a GTO specific starter. Found 2 refurbished ones that say they are for GTO, but they don't fit. Bought a real Nice MSD starter it fits but now it hits my catalytic. so I am forced to buy a OEM one from the dealer .

The electronic odometer does hook up to the factory GM speed sensor. I love technology. No more speedo cables

Is there a way to calibrate that according to your gear ratios/tire diameter?
