So much controversy..

So 3.73's or 4.10's? I know the 4.10's lower mpg and suck at the top end but give good acceleration. I'm not saying I haven't raced before but I do like to go fast (in a safe environment) cuz 4.10's lower top speed.. and I figured the 3.73 are better all around. Opinions?

I went with 3.73 gears because it seemed like the better choice with the plans I have for the pony, like SC next year.

That's what I was thinking. I wanted to get a supercharger in a few years cuz my car only has 36,000 miles so why not make it fun to drive until I have the money for a GT

410s don't lower mpgs that much on freeway and u actually get better city mileage. Considering tour not full throttle from stop to stop lol.

4.10s don't really lower top speed because by the time you get up to speed your engine will be bogged down to where it can't accelerate. 4.10s allow your car to stay in its powerband so you can accelerate past that point. Yes on a dyno with no resistance factors your car will have a lower top speed.
