racing on a 3/8 mile track , i run a 6.20 final gear in my chevy with same size tires as ford will be. I turn around 6500, should i run the same gear in the ford car im building or do they need less gear?

you will want to run less gear..take advantage of the torque the Ford has, I suggest 5.83 for starters.
