Years ago I added the Andial 8:39 R&P to what was mostly my track car. Economical upgrade that I'm still happy with today. MPH changes from the 9:38 to the 8:39 are below:

1st gear @ 6.5k rpm - 52mph to 45mph
2nd gear @ 6.5k rpm - 90mph to 78mph
3rd gear @ 6.5k rpm - 132mph to 114mph
4th gear @ 6.5k rpm - 188mph to 163mph

A buddy years later built a big hp 930 and re-geared his to match 2nd-5th on a 915 box iirc. 1st gear was good to 72mph @ 7k rpm and riding with him as he geared down to 1st for turn 3A at Pacific Raceways was pretty cool. He shifted a lot more than I did each lap but had an "active" 4-speed. On the street his 1st gear was not much fun...

Paul Guard also suggested ratios for me before I went the 8:39 route. I did add his GT 50/80 LSD and sold the GT TB diff I had been running. That 80% lock really settled the rear down under heavy braking.

1st 2.250
2nd 1.304
3rd 0.893
4th 0.625
