Default T-56 magnum gear question

I'm considering going for the T-56 magnum tranny with the .50 6th gear. I'm making about 450rwhp/tq on a centri-blower using the stock rear gear ratio. I'm not planning on changing my rear gear. Anyone have any experience with this?

2003 Cobras had the T-56 and only 3.55s. I doubt 3.27s are going to kill your final drive ratio. Hell some Cobra owners step down to 3.27s with turbo setups.

Understandable but what I'm getting at is since the transmission was originally intended to go with a motor with a twin screw blower which makes all its power down low and I make mines up high than would the 2.97 1st gear slow me down out of the hole at the drag strip? Once again I don't have much knowledge on this subject matter.
