Look at the sticker on driver door side. Look for these double letters. GG-3.31 DD-3.55. BB-3.73. I am quoting from a previous thread

Are lower gears better for a turbo?

Do everything you want for power. Remember the 2011+ gearing is totally different then every other year simply cause way tranny is geared. If going with a supercharger or Turbo keep stock gears.

With my auto I have did math and I want to trap 137+ in 3rd gear so I will be doing a 3.55s gear. If I wanted to trap in 4th I would be doing 3.90.
