Re: gearing and speed question 3.27 to 4.10
ted arent you auto? if so, thats 2.73's back there. if not, dont mind me.
i too am going with 4.1's soon(week or two), my 5th gear is reaaaaaally long, and its useless unless youre going 80+(bogging the motor hurts mileage, good to keep rpm around 2-2.5k), and anything under that in 4th the car is running at 2500+ and sounds like youre racing yourself. i want 4.1's so i can use 5th in the city, and still be at around 2.3-2.5k on the freeway doing 80. thats the reason im basically doing 4.1's. here i went from the gst with a super short 4-5th(going from 4th to 5th only dropped you 400rpm) feeling like i would love the super long 5th gear, but im starting to hate it.
