Higher gear would limit your top end but with the tq your getting now why do gears

Jeno that's what was going thru my mind! It move well now can was thinking the 373 would make it spin worse. It spins the wheels bad in second at times but it's still moving the car well 373 would bring that spin on sooner and Iam thinking will hurt it more than help it. Hell I don't know lol

3.73s would be stupid with that setup, sorry to be blunt. If you don't already, you should be looking into a Circle D converter.

Just find a low mileage 4R75w out of an 04 GT or Mach. Swap that in with the new converter and you are golden. Way cheaper than a rebuilt crazy one.

Hmmm you can get a solid 75w for 1/4 of that price if you look. And it'll hold 600+. But I mean do what you need to do. If you are planning on 700+ later on it might be a good idea.

Curiosity kills me how the 373 would be as opposed to the 327! Hate to change it and it not be as strong or spin worse

Well what you don't want is to run out of 3rd gear before the 1/4 mile pole. Also on street tires you are just going to torch them with an auto.

If you are loosing traction in the first two gears now, why are you considering making it worse by going to 3.73's? The 3.73's would feel better on the highway when you want to pass without a downshift, but that does not sound like what you are after here at all.
Have you done a dyno run on your car with the current setup? If you have, take a look at your torque curve -- I'd be willing to bet that you have 90% of your torque all in below 2,400 rpm or less.
3.73's are just going to make the car difficult to drive as you will be too busy steering when the rear tires go up in smoke all the way through 1st and 2nd gears.

It spins thru drive now first is easy about the time the boost comes on its almost time to change into second about that time it's moving the car well but spinning pretty damn hard. I am curious about the track with good tires 373's would be better or the 327 still load the turbos harder and pull better.

The 3.27's are a better choice since they will put a load on the car which helps build boost.

I do not see a problem with 3.73 gears. Get the car on some good tires and better suspension parts. I tell you it will be quicker with 3.73. Unless you are running 130 plus you will not run out of rpms. With a tighter convertor it tends to bog the motor. So the gear will help keep the motor accelerating.

Less gear is a band aid for lack of traction

Less gear on a turbo car puts a load on it and builds boost faster.

Thats not what it is all about. A properly sized turbo will enhance spool up. And reduce lag.
