Help with rear gear ratio choice

I’ve posted this on 2 other forums, just trying to get as many options as I can

what would be a good rear gear ratio choice? It’s 3200 lb with driver back half ladder bar mustang. 600ci c head with single 4, so prob all in by 7000 rpm Has c6 tranny with factory ratios (2.46, 1.46) converter slip between 5-7% It’s an 1/8 mile car, and on nitrous pass could see 142mph. Would like to b capable of 145 I would perfer to not rev the motor higher than 7400, less is if it will be quicker Tires are 33x18.5x15 qtp, (dot) according to Hoosier will grow 1-1.5” diameter
