It be a lot better than what u have. 4.10s be the best for auto. That is a good deal tho. Yous still have to get install kit and maybe rebuild kit, if your car has high miles.

American muscle has install kits, think around $100. Not sure about shifting but a tuner would help big time on the automatics. Plus your speedometer will be off a little bit from changing gears. I'd say get a tuner if u can or start saving up for one.

American muscle gives 6% discount if u have 50 posts. They also price match.

4.10s do lower the top speed, but how often do you reach top speed? It will actually help you a lot in higher speeds because you will be able to continue accelerating where as stock gears will eventually have too much resistance on them to keep going.

Think wind resistance and being able to push through it.
