Probably 4.10s. The best way to tell is jack up the rear end, mark a line on the driveshaft, spin the tire one full revolution, and count how many times the driveshaft rotates

Is the speedometer corrected, assuming 4th gear? Also, this is a super odd question, like what are you accomplishing? Anyway, it's probably 3.73's if the speedometer is corrected. I believe manuals with 4.10's at 70mph is 2500RPM.

There are calculators online you can use. Plugin your tire height, 4th gear ratio, the mph and and the gears, then it spits out rpms at that speed, so just put in common gear ratios to find it.

The auto does have a higher OD ratio, like .74 or something, so rpms will be higher than the maual with the same rear gears


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I was referring to the fact the when you change gears it throws the speedometer off (if getting lower gears, the gauge shows a lower speed than you are actually going). I don't really know how all the sensors and lights are hooked up, so I have no clue if that could be something or just something completely different
