Re: 3.73s or 4.10

with your mods id go with 3.73's. you have more power and you can use that to your advantage to stay in a gear longer and use the power to push yourself to a higher rpm before shifting.

id recommend tranny cooler as well, autos hate heat and the 4r70 is crap enough under normal stresses, let alone supercharged and turning through those gears faster with the new rear end ratio.

Re: 3.73s or 4.10

autos should go wtih 4.10s due to the tranny gears are worse than manuals, going 4.10s in an auto is about like going 3.73s in a manual (nearly)

Do you do a lot of Interstate driving and very little track use I would say 3.73's but if you are a local driver and plan on being on the track a lot get 4.10's.

Re: 3.73s or 4.10

4.10s are almost a must for an automatic

Don't fear the gear dude..... otherwise you'll be kicking yourself in no time.
