May need some good DR over the street tires. Am running 3.91 with the Whipple. But also have the 4L80 trans.

If you already have the gear I wouldn't take it out but I wouldn't buy it either.

At times I wish I had 3.23's instead of 3.45's.

I have 3.70 with about 850 rwhp and its intense... very fun power ... been running 2.92 for about a year and after switching back to 3.70 wow what a difference.

To much gear for the TVS2300. I have A6 with 3.45's and It's hard to hook up on DR's. I'm at 600rwhp.

I have an M6 and was running 4.10s with my setup. 'Was a lot of fun for 7K miles...until they broke, LOL. Launching it on street tires would have been laughable though. I imagine it would be similar for an automatic with 3.70s. I'm back to stock 3.45s, for now, but will probably go to 3.70s or 3.91s/3.89s when I upgrade my drivetrain. Even with the cam and blower, the stock gears still feel too long for street driving.

roots blower instant torque would better benefit a 3.45 IMO.
