Multiply the fd ratio by gear ratio, then multiply by the torque = torque at the wheels

Torque is responsible for acceleration. If both had the same torque curve, then the 1st example would be quicker:

3.166 x 4.11 = 13.01 x lbft = torque at the wheels
3.454 x 3.7 = 12.78 x lbft = torque at the wheels
