In regards to 4.10 gears.

Ok, obviously I'll get a lot better acceleration with them, but what will my highway ride be like? Will it be too much strain on an older 3.8? What will my typical RPM range be at 70. I won't be doing a lot of highway but when I do I don't want to ruin my care. Any personal experience or input would be great thanks in advance.

Manual or automatic?

This is mine with a manual and 245/45R17s. I just slow down to 65 instead

That's actually better than I thought it was going to be. I've got the auto trans with 18s for now but I'll be getting 17s in the near future.

Are those pictures of a GT? I've got the base V6. Would my cruise sit at a higher RPM?

I think the Auto has a higher overdrive right? It shouldn't be too bad to be honest
