4:10s - Tune? Pros and cons?

Huge props to grabber for taking time to chat on the phone. Very cool guy and knows his stuff.

Think after he explained things to me a little more watered down, money will be better spent else where.

Public thanks to Grabber.

I'm not a good numbers guy. If 4:10s go in, what will I feel different in the car? Worse take offs?

The few ppl that put me over the edge to buy them said Id never be able to keep rubber on the wheels

So of course I was like "fun!"

The 4:10's, the tune. the intake were the first and only mods I've done - all around 9 years ago. Never looked back, you'll feel it in the seat of your pants and know with those mods you'll probably beat most stock GT's red light to red light. (Not that I'd endorse street racing)
BTW, I'm a 2005 4.0 V6 Auto

Completely different engine and transmission. While it may have worked for you it is completely irrelevant for the 5.0 automatic.

You are absolutely correct! I should have paid more attention to the original post. My reference is to 2005 4.0 vs 2005 4.6.

Lol. You know that's the case! On stock tires with no tune hooking up is difficult.

Uh. You can say that.
Trac control off and 3/4 throttle the car redlines standing still in a plume of smoke.

Fun yet makes you wonder if the car got a good hook it'd snap your next

Have to feather the gas lol
