Default Two speed swap on SC10GT?

I'm sitting here looking at an SC10GT with a very tired AE 18X but otherwise in good nick and an NTC3 with a very healthy OS 18 CV-RX but worn out front end. I'm going to swap the engine over(Conveniently enough the gaer pitch is the same and 1st gear on the clutch bell lines up perfectly with the SC10GT's spur gear so it will drop right in), but I've had another thought:


I want to move the 2-speed over and re-gear it.

Stock SC10GT gearing is 20/54 and this makes for a very punchy truck. And I'm going to have EVEN MORE torque on hand, so a truck prone to wheelies is very plausible indeed. NTC3 2-speed RTR bell? 22/26. I'll effectively be running 22/54 on the single speed. But if I move the two speed over, I can re-gear things while I'm in there. Associated still hs everything I need in stock, a bare bell, 20t and 26t pinions, 54t spur and a 48t spur. I'm also gonna replace the clutch shoes while I'm in there(Would go 3-shoe but the flywheel's discontinued, might grab one off eBay who knows), not for wear reasons, but simply on principle of them being cheap as chips and the old shoes being >10 years old.


If I successfully do this swap, considering the amount of power I'll have on tap(Enough to wheelie T-MAxxes with ease), ya'll reckon I can get a GPS confirmed 55MPH out of this setup?
