Default gearing help needed

I know this has been asked a thousand times before nut after multiple searches I couldnt find am answer that fits my circumstance.
Anyway I'm setting up for mod tc will be running a tc6.1 with tekin 7.5 what is a good starting point for gearing? The kit comes with a 48p 87t spur but with the max 35t pinion that's like 6.4 FDR seems really off I thought 3.5-4 FDR was the magic number. Should I switch to 64 pitch gears or is around 6fdr what I'm looking for with this motor and running maybe some boost? Any help appreciated.

For Mod, 4.0 is way too tall. Try it with the kit 6.5 and run boost. Looks like most of the setups on Petit are even geared toward 7.0 (87/23).
