3rd gear power?.....

Have a 2010 gt with 3.55 gears. My question is when I hit third the power flattens out, Will me upgrading to 3.73's help?

Is your 2010 stock?What mods do you have. I have a 2010 with cai,pullies,sct tuner, o/r x pipe and 3.73. But before I was running the stock 3.30 rear and it was still pulling strong even hitting 3rd. Mine recently made 316hp @6000 rpm and 327trq @4200 with only those mods. Got a 12.5@105 also.

The 3.73 is very great gear,but you should not fall off that bad.You Stock? Should be waiting on ya a little bit.What RPM you shifting at when you are feeling the fall off?

Gears or full exhaust. Headers and h or x pipe will help your engine flow better and plus you'll gain significant power on your blown engine. How much power are you making right now?
