You don't gain or lose RWHP with gears

But gears will definitely help the lower end of your powerband which is where your car lacks

the best mods to do to your car is getting gears either 373 or 410 and a tune.

Gears really help with low RPM acceleration. You do lose MPG, though, due to RPMs being higher at lower speeds. I have the 3.73s and it's not a huge difference in fuel usage, but a huge difference in acceleration. However, you have an automatic, so I highly recommend getting a tuner or have it tuned to recalibrate your shift points. If you don't, you can (not absolutely will) cause damage to your transmission. The tune is also a noticible upgrade in power as well as economy.

Gear change will require a tuner to correct the speedo. So do both. You won't regret it. After that, your wasting your money. JMO.

What do you mean you're wasting your money after tune and gears?
