Re: GEARS???

If gas mileage isn't a factor go for the 4.10's.

Re: GEARS???

only reason people say 3.73 is because you shift from 1st to 2nd really soon.

Re: GEARS???

my only concern with 4.10s is the 4.6L SOHC motor is a top end motor and you will wind through the rpms quickly~ but its not a HUGE difference vs 3.73 either will make an improvement... but if you dont want to be let down (the difference from 3.27 to 3.73 is not that much and I felt let down when I did that swap... only about 2.5 tenths quicker) then go 4.10s but... 1st gear will become quite useless FYI.

If you EVER plan on having more than 350rwhp then I would just go with 3.73 as 4.10s will just make it worse trying to get traction.

Re: GEARS???

you can probably find a GT somewhere that has 4.10s and ask for a quick ride to see how it compares. You can feel and tell the difference with 3.73s but I was expecting more... I do guess I was spoiled. My previous car went from 2.73 to 3.73 and thats a BIG jump.
