Re: 3.73 or 3.55

If 4.10s are giving you that big of an issue then drop back down to stock 3.27s. The difference in RPMs between 4.10 and 3.73 will be around 100, and between 3.55 and 4.10 will be around 200 at most.

You still won't be happy with either of those.

Get 3:55 if your S/C
3:73 are perfect all around though

Re: 3.73 or 3.55

What are you turning at 60mph, 70mph, or 75mph? Because I have 4.10s and I only turn 400rpm more than stock 3.27s at each speed.

You must have a steeper gear than 4.10s. I'm at turning about 2500-2600 at 70 with 4.10s

Yeah, idk what the hell you're running, but I'm right at around 2.4-2.5k @ 7mph.

I got 3.73's. I am right about 2000rpm at 70mph

I would find out what's making your car not run right before changing anything. I'm pretty sure you said that it didn't feel like it was running right once you got to your destination, correct?
