Both my 215-powered Vegas had 2.56 gears..... it seems the 13" wheels with 205/60s keep it reasonable. My first 215 would pull up our mountain roads in 5th at 1100 rpm without a hiccup. It pulled down low better than this 282 duration 215. Of course, it isn't a drag car.
I easily pull out in 2nd gear in both cars.
As you can see, it pulls nicely enough to break both tires loose in a couple corners........ fuel starvation on the 360 hurt (and a little pushing in front) .... the 3.40 first gear was almost perfect for this course..... didn't have to shift at all. https://youtu.be/Jl_SCwetGmw
Granted, the eventual swap to a T-5 with a higher 1st gear might necessitate a rear gear change..... but I was really hoping to keep 70 mph cruise rpms down around 1500.
Back on topic.....
Ebay has FiTech unit for $795
I like FITECH underhood fuel cell that doesn't require an in-tank pump change...... if it's not too loud..... $395
