Plus every shop I talked to told me that it'd be best to go with 3.55's if I plan on having a high hp car further down the road. So I'd rather not get the 3.73's especially if I don't feel a big difference, I know it's only a 200 rpm difference but when I test drove the 3.73's I found myself shifting a bit more on highway pulls than the 3.55's and all the shifting made it feel slower to me. Now if I had an auto then I'd definitely go with the 3.73's since I could actually utilize the gears to its fullest.
