Default Recommendation for gears

I have a 87 Mustang 5.0 with Edelbrock H/C/I & Carb, and a C4 with a 2k stall (originally an AOD). I am looking to upgrade the stock gears. I don't plan on doing much highway driving with the car and am just going for a mild street/strip setup. What would you guys recommend for gears?
Thanks, Gil

with no od your an exception to the norm

3.73 is most will say and and i'll almost agree.... 4.10 will still be better but your gonna probably be tach'ing 3k doing 65

also the stall is too low... you need 3000

if you did 3.73, you will really need a 3k.... if you do 4.10... 2k might be ok but you won't ever see a stellar 60' time
