With a 98 and no forced induction i'd go at least 4.10. Alot of people go 4.30, you just need a different cover. 4v cars love to wind out

3.73s will do just fine. You will feel the torque a bit more with 4.10 gears, but if you go with a 4.10 and add more power later you will want a final gear that doesn't wind up and top out before you need it to.

Yes, the tires become easier to spin as the final gear ratio increases. A 4.10 gear will break loose faster than a 3.73 gear.

You can control the torque with your right foot. 4.10s are not uncontrollable. A lot of guys love them.

I run 3.73 and enjoy a middle ground compromise of sorts.

My fuel mileage is about 20mpg around town. I have not been to the track or on a good trip yet.

The car will be driven on a 300 mile round trip in a few weeks. I am expecting a decent hwy mileage with a light foot.

If my car was a track car I would have 4.10 gears. That would make for a quick 1st to 2nd shift, but it would get off the line a few hundredths quicker.

My RPM at 55mph is under 2000, and about 2200rpm at 70mph.

Well mine is a mix of track and daily lol i dont really race it much at the track maybe 2x a year I feel like 373s will be good enough but still got ppl saying "oh you should've gone with 410s 373s are a waste" which is kinda annoying now

3.73 sounds like a good ratio for your application. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone can normally rationalize that opinion. In the end the choice is yours to make, not theirs.

You will find this same debate concerning cold air intakes, exhaust, clutch brands, tires, wheels, and anything else on the car. At the end of the day your car needs to make you happy. If you are living life trying to please everyone else you will never be satisfied, and other people's opinion will control your life.

You will feel a nice difference in the 3.73 over the stock gearing.

4.30 is too steep for me, but I drive my car daily. With a factory suspension set up 4.30 gears would turn my tires into a fog machine.

OEM fluid is perfectly fine. I wouldn't suggest anything else unless you are road racing and heating the brakes. At that point you will be upgrading calipers, lines, rotors, and possibly the master cylinder.
