A tune for gears?

I just got 3.73s put in and I didn't feel much of a difference. Is the tune only for Speedo calibration or does it help the performance also?

What type of tuner did you get? And what gears did you have before the 3.73. We need more information, can't read your mind.

Gears dont really give more power. It just changes how many times the wheels turn compared to the drive shaft. You should have noticed an increase in acceleration and a drop in gas mileage at high speed due to higher rpm with bigger gears. Want more power try cai and headers with an appropriate tune to go with.

Going from 3.31 to 3.73 isn't that much of a difference. You should still accelerate better, but won't be a WOW with that type of gear change.

The tune does nothing for a gear. It is a mechanical part.

I assure you it is quicker. Best test would have been a before and after track test.

Hey,

I'm sorry to hear you the gears didn't wake the car up as much as you expected. Like others have said, the jump for 3.31 to 3.73 is not a huge difference, but it should still be noticeable.

The tune for the most part is mainly to correct speedometer and odometer readings, unless you have an auto, in which some shift points are sometimes changed as well, but still a minor change.

I'm confident that the car is much quicker and if you took it to the track, I think you would really see the benefits. Often times it is hard to feel the changes, and but when taken to the track you will see the pick ups.

I hope this information clears some things up, if you have any questions feel free to get back in touch. Best of luck!

-Dan

Sorry it took me so long to respond guys. But yes it's an auto. I can definitely feel a difference I just thought it would be more lol. On a good day I can get a third gear scratch. I need to take it to the track.

I didn't notice much when I swapped gears until I drove it for a while. After smashing the gas pedal I could tell.
