I like 3.73s. Never had the 4.10s but I was advised against them when I was looking at gears. I didn't ask why lol.

Pick whichever one works your moods, just be sure and research the + & - of all then choose.

Would 4.10s be too much for a daily driver? It is an automatic though my gears need replacing and I figure why not get a steeper gear but I can't decide between 3.73 or 4.10

Re: 4.10 gears?

I put 4.10s in my auto, with my summer tires i dont even spin unless I power break. If you have a BAMA tune just put 4.10s in the option list and it is dead on with the speed. Heres some good comparison videos (look at my channel for the GTO and I..... hint hint)

BEFORE

AFTER

Wow I thought I was bad off in my auto, with 4.10s at 65 is 2500 rpm and i get 14 mpg city and 17 highway. I thought a 5 speed would be better due to different gearing in the tranny.

Re: 4.10 gears?

MPG shouldn't' hurt when changing the gear ratio. Ive had 3.27s all the way to 4.56s...MPG ranged from 27 to 23. This was from a 2v stock to a cammed big bore making 430rwhp getting 22-23mpg, running 4.56s.

I also had 4.30s in my cammed aviator combo...got 24+on the interstate...doing 80mph..

you guys have to remember, what you pick up in engine RPM, you lose in load on the motor cause it isn't working as hard as it was before with the other gears. Ive done tests back and forth, and the difference from 3.27s to 4.10s, you shouldn't notice anything more than 1-2mpg difference...if that.

If you notice more than that, than 1, your driving habits changed...or 2, your tune got messed with.

Go 4.10s and don't look back. I have 4.30s in my daily bullitt...2800+rpm is nothing for these modulars when you can spin 7k stock. This isnt the old 5.0s that you want to shift stock at 5500. lol.

Read the threads in my signature. I have 4.10s in my 2v and get roughly 20 mixed mpg.

Don't ever fear the gear.

NE, got any references, read ups you can pass on so I can understand this better. Doubt I can achieve your performance without a good custom tuner tech. I get better mileage with my SCT on tired 100k + stock heads but doubt I can achieve yours with simple bolt-ons unless I plan it right. I have a tuner already. Is it enough to adjust gear change?

Like I said. Mine is DD and I get 20 mixed mpg and the acceleration is amazing. If you go 3.73 you will not get near the accel but will gain MAYBE 1mpg. If that.

Just saying.

Not saying 3.73 are bull... It's a fantastic track gear for our cars. But for DD/street fun and drag.. 4.10s all the way.

A FI 2v is still pushing roughly 380-440rwhp. That's not too terribly much and 4.10s would still work especially if you happened to have done a swap to a 6-speed.

Don't fear the gear! My dad had a 4.30 on his daily driver and I have a 4.10 on mine. If you go lower you'll regret it. It's perfect for me since my Vortech makes power up top and the gear helps down low.
