Without mathematically figuring it out and not knowing what your 2nd gear ratio is I would probablly say around 6200 rpm. Eddie

If you are running through the tranny now and you are going to run final gear make sure you have a good balanced driveshaft

You will turn more going stright through the tranny then if you gear it through the tranny so my best guess is that you will gain 500 rpm's
