For some reason, this doesnt make sense.it depends on how much boost u intend to run.
Most guys feel that with the 4.10's anything more then 10-12 psi and they run out of gear and have to shift before they reach max boost levels. with 3.73's they have that extra second or so at WOT to put the power to the ground a little longer
link to calculator please?Accoarding to a nice little calc I have, top speed for 4.10 is 173 mph while 3.73 tops @ 191 (both 6K rpm's in 5th gear)
With 4.10's you'd be shifting @ about 118mph into 5th vs 130 for 3.73's giving you the ability to finish the 1/4 before needing 5th
ok, say ur racing someone. Ur in 5th gear going 155mph. Ur obviously near redline and are gonna want to shift. But ur not going to have anywhift too.For some reason, this doesnt make sense.
Can you explain it differently so we're on the same page?

3.73's top out a lil higher then 4.10s
Personally if I had a manual I might even consider leaving the 3.55s in there with a supercharger. I think 4.10s are too steep for an FI car, but 3.73s are perfect.
Check this out.
Since right now I have the 3.31s I would trade em for 3.73s, but if mine was a stick with the 3.55s it wouldn't be worth the money to change to 3.73s because the difference is so small.
