the c4 with a turbo is a great combo. small and somewhat light and dosent cost a fortune to build. i am 100% pleased with my c4 swap and will never go back. with a mild 3.27 gear and 28" tire it's still very mild and dose'nt rev to the moon while driving on the street. you will be pleased.

You would probably 60' better with a 3.55.

I can't comment on the 4.6 turbo powerband you might get, but I'd go 3.27 with a 2.75 first even with 28's. But that's just cause I'd want it as little better on the street for me. You sound like you may going racier though.

What kinda times do you want to run? What kinda R's will the motor turn? You can guesstimate your finish line R's and see how the gears work out.
