4.56 too much???

so im looking to do a gear swap and i want the best 0-60 boost i can get but do you think that 4.56 gears would just be too much for the stock rear end to handle or you think ill be alright?

Unless your motor can go beyond 6-7k rpms or your running 33x12.50 slicks in the back I would stay away from 4.56s

This car belongs to Melvin, the owner of FastLane and it has 4.56's. The wheels are 20x10 + the tires.

3.73s are already efficiency killers!

4.10's are still too much for a stock 3.7! Dude go 3.73's at the most. With 4.10's first gear is beyond useless. Your trans basically becomes a 5 speed

Night and day from stock 2.73s. Of course, 4.10s are even more, but it's all up to you.

The 0-60 times and even 0-100 times will be the exact same for 3.73's and 4.10's if not a tad slower for the 4.10's due to traction issues with stock tires. 3.73's will be much more useful and save you a little at the pump

Really?!? I thought the 4.10a would have a better 0-60

The problem with going with too much gear is traction - that is why 4.10's may not net you what you are looking for over 3.73. You have to take into account your set up (tires and suspension) as well as the engine itself. Where is the power band, where do you have your most torque and will the gear take you out of the power band. Then can you get the tires to hook up is the biggest issue.

+1 tires is everything. Without traction it won't matter how much power or torque your making..

Yep. Tires are super important. Arguably one of the best performance upgrades depending on your application
