4.10 gears with a 5speed

is this a bad idea? what would the benefits be? increase in torque? obviously the gears will be shorter and there will be quicker acceleration right? would 3.73's be a betteridea? about how much time would this take off the quarter mile e/t?

Re: 4.10 gears with a 5speed

With 4:10s first gear is almost useless. 3:73s would be better all around.

I have an auto. When I installed 4:10s it took .3 tens of a sec. Off the quarter.

Oh. I didn't know you had a V6. With a V6 I would go with the 4:10s it would be the best bang for the buck.

Go for the 410's they are great. Just do some research on a good shop for the install and get something in writing about installation warranty.

Re: 4.10 gears with a 5speed

for a v6 your power band is VERY limited so I would personally think 4.10s are just to steep, also you get zero hp/tq increase but you do get amplification that the gears give you overall~

I had 3.73 in my 97 auto and I liked them, 4.10s would work but I think 3.73 for a manual v6 is a good set. Also if going from stock 2.73 expect a good gain in performance of about .5 tenths in the quarter~ there about

If your car is a weekend car then you may wish to try 4.10s, the first gear in t-5s is kinda short as is so you will be shifting very frequently lol and 70mph will be VERY high in the rpms and give drone if you have custom mufflers or exhaust.

yeah i have already figured that if i get the 4.10s ill prolly have to drive at about 60-65 on the freeway.

Re: 4.10 gears with a 5speed

also, your speedo gear wont fix the speedo... you may can do a dallas speedcal unit, if not then you will have to take the tail shaft out of the transmission and replace the gear there as well as the speedo gear~ this is an annoyance just FYI

Re: 4.10 gears with a 5speed

3.73's period for a sixer. my buddy had 4.10's and he regretted it. yeah he would get me off the line but i was past him mid way second gear and kept pulling from there and your top speed will be like 95ish with 4.10's with a speed limiter. fyi we had very similar setups exception of exhaust (me :flo's him:magnaflow) and the gearing of course.

Re: 4.10 gears with a 5speed

So 3.73 is the way to go? Im looking to change my gears, i have a 2000 automatic v6.

I also read on americanmuscle that once you change the gears you will have to adjust the speedometer, would a tuner do the job?
