    kind of an open ended question and very much a matter of opinion.
    did you like the ratio that was there? if so, then replace with the same.
    if you were revving the engine too much, throw a longer one in (3.54:1 from a 2L sedan)
    if you wanted faster acceleration then try find a shorter one like a 4.1:1

    I have a Mk2 panel van 1600 daily driver until two years ago.
    All mechanically factory standard used in metro traffic.
    After experimenting with ratio swaps I found by far the best option for driveability and fuel economy was the 3:54 ratio.
