Gear Ratio

So far I have a tune and Airaid CAI on my 2012 V6 and was looking at changing the gears next since I heard it made the biggest noticeable difference without spending a ton of money. Which gear ratio do you guys suggest? I'm torn between the 3.73 and 4.10. I really want to go all out for the most gain and get the 4.10 but I heard you lose a ton of high end power. Is the loss that noticeable and would I be better off witht he 3.73? Right now I have the stock ones (no performance package).

I personally believe in 3.73 gears for a street car. I had 4.10 gears in my 94 cobra. I first went with 3.73 and loved them. I made some more mods and switched to 4.10 which allowed me to roll through the trap in the quarter mile at the top of fourth gear.

BTW, you don't loss any power with gear changes. The lower the gear, the better the drive train can send power to the tires.
