FI LS3 M6 & gears

Anyone with SC, cam and 635 rwhp with gears. Wanting to know how much more it affected your MPG and traction issues. I have the full BMR suspension setup with 315's and car hooks decent when I want it too. Not going to track the car, its mainly to scoot around town. LPE 370's or LPE 3.90's or stay with stock 3.45's?

With a maggie, I can't see how you'll get traction at all with a high ratio gear....that is if you even have traction right now.
