Gears

Know there's a lot of threads on gears and I did a lot of searches but can't find exactly what I need to know.
My car is a 2005 GT. It's got axle back muffler deletes, JLT CAI and I run a 93 Bama race tune. It's an automatic. It's my daily driver, and I need to get around town, but I would live to get some autocross experience or some track time in this spring.

I'm thinking of putting 4.10 gears in it. is this my best option to increase general acceleration/ seat of the pants experience and potentially get better quarter times, go faster, etc...?

If I do this do I need to get a new tune from Bama? Or is there a way to calibrate the speedo in the shop? In other words, what do I need to know about tunes before I go into this.

Is there reason any one can think of why I should not do this? It seems like it would be the next logical 'go fast ' mod for me to make.
Thanks

Yeah 4.10's are the best for auto. Yes you need to get a new tune from bama or you'll be 5 to 10 mph off

Okay, I would be getting them from AM, with the install kit and all- I called the Perf shop I usually use and they want over $600 to install them- really? That seems high to me. Anybody know anywhere in Richmond VA that is a little more reasonable? I was thinking I'd be paying 300-400, if it's gonna be that much, may as well hold off and get wheels...

Don't pay high for that. I searched around and found a mechanic that was a 1hr drive away from my home but would same-day install and warranty the work all for $365.

I go to them for a lot of things and have referred my friends to them as well. You just have to look around and take your time.

I paid 350 to have my 3.73 installed. Took the mechanic about 4 hrs , and he does a few of these a month.
300 to 400 sounds about right.

Some shops will do it cheaper if you bring the axle to them. I had a shop install 4.56 gears in a rear end I took out from under my truck and took them the axle, gears and install kit. I think they charged me 150 bucks.

Re: Gears

4.10s without a doubt, but i recommend a high stall TC first, I had a Lincoln Mark VIII (4.6 DOHC W/4R70w) and with the gears alone i ran 14.4-14.6, stock was 15.2 BTW then the trans went out so before i put in a new one a put in a Edge racing 3500 stall and uninstalled the 410s and with just the stall i was running 13.8-14.1s and the car had so much more fun factor, sadly the car never made it to the track with both the stall and gears, but Stall first then 410s
