Macus is a 5 speed manual tranny with the 3.55 rear end. I think the 07's have the 3.31 rear end as an option.

There's no wrong gear ratio for a NA car (well I suppose 4.56 might be a little over the top ) I've been perfectly satisfied with 4.10.

stl, i've always been told not to go higher than 3.73 or i would sacrifice top speed ..what have you noticed? with 4.10 can you still hit 140 as easily? i know the acceleration has got to be wicked cause 3.73 is... but whats the down side?

130s is still doable but you do start running out of top end with the 4.10s. They are great off the line but you do end up rowing a lot of gears.

And how offen are you going to be running 140? Unless your running on the hi bank tracks, 80 or 90 on the interstates are about good. :hihi:

Only on those rare occasions... Like when I'm on the run after a three-state killing spree.

A 5 speed car can still go in the 170's with 410's, granted that it has the power to reach that mph. If anything 410's make it easier to hit 140 and I doubt with stock like power and stock gears your going to be going over 150(unless you live in germany) and with a supercharger if your out make 150 mph passes your asking to build a motor.
