Re: need some help with 2003 v6

check out some of the site sponsors. some of them may even be members that can direct you further (doubt that they will find this thread though). also, since they are a sponsor of ME, i highly doubt they would do anything shady. word would get to the site in a heartbeat.

im sure someone on here can provide additional info about the specific ones you may want/need.

id start with the CAI, get the tlok and gears together, chip and tune. i believe the gears also will throw off your speedometer, but the chip can re-adjust that.

start small with the CAI first though

wat does a 3.73 or 4.10 gear do to a car? And does it work for automatics?

The make of the CAI won't make a difference...just a differen quality of material.

Gears are what are in your rear end, they transfer the power from the driveshaft to the rear wheels using gears at different ratios. By changing this ratio you are changing how many times the rear wheels turn per turn of the driveshaft. Factory your car comes with 3.27:1 gear ratio. This means for every 1 turn of the driveshaft your rear wheels are making 3.27 revolutions. If you were to go with a 4.10:1 ratio, for every 1 turn of the driveshaft your rear wheels would turn 4.10 times. By going with a taller ratio you are basically multiplying the power you put to the ground.

Re: need some help with 2003 v6

For a auto run 4:10's !! 4:10 gears will not give you more traction. The higher you go numerically the shorter the gearing will be. The shorter the gearing the faster the power is transfered to the drive wheels. Which without proper tires and suspension will hurt traction and can make your car slower. With proper tires and suspension setup it can help majorly. Shorter gearing will also take away top end. You will get to top speed quicker

I think you meant the opposite. for every 3.27 revolutions of driveshaft your wheels make 1 revolution.

If you put 4.10 gears in does anyone know if you have to retune the computer or buy a different driveshaft?
