I think that's a good choice for you. I have 4.10s on mine, but there is no problem at all with 3.73s.

I have no problem with them on my car. But there is a difference in Highway gas mileage. Those higher RPMs you will notice by gas. City driving, not so bad and you don't notice that much. All in all, besides the MPG, the 4.10's are Phenomenal. But with that being said: I don't believe the 3.73s are far from that. If MPGs are big on your list of importance, then go with the 3.73s.

Yes, you will need someone to Tune your car into the New Gears. Or your speedometer will be Off.

I have stock gears (auto) and run 1800 RPM's doing 70, so your RPMs are going to be higher than southernmusle's manual tranny with 4.10's.

Also southernmuscle, are you sure your speedo is correct? A buddy of mine has 4.10's in a manual and runs like 2300-2500 RPM at 70. He hates them because his top speed is like 120 and he gets 15 MPG.

Top speed at the end of 5th for the manual is 160mph. Top of 4th is 120, but you have another gear left.
