I don't think you'll find too much needs beating, unless you are using one of 
those new-fangled all-synch boxes instead of the earlier, much nicer

NO - leave the 4.55 in it. Your top gear with the OD will be 3.6 - you sure 
don't need any lower than that, and with the 4.55 you will retain optimum 
acceleration, while having quite relaxed cruising.

(4.88 + OD and 4.55 + OD in my cars

PS - don't you think the Maggot would look nice with 5.5 x 15 TR6 wire
