Hi Dave, i am running a 3.31 on a 3.9 If acceleration is what you are after then best bet is a 3.54.

3.31 LSD on 4.6, nice balance of acceleration and cruising revs.

Thanks guys.
I used to have a 3.7 but that became unusable. I then could only get a 3.07 or a 3.9 (I have an MGB back axle in my 289) and I opted fpr the 3.07 but this is too high. I think I have located a second hand 3.3 so was looking for some comfort.
