Rear Gearing question
Ok, need to hear from some gurus. Fairly simple question, and to make sure my thoughts are correct. I have a 2018 GT. Manual, so it has a 3.73 gear. I added some 305/45/17 Thomspon SS rear tires, the car feels a bit slower with moving acceleration, of course thinking the larger tires which are about 2 to 3 inches larger than stock caused this, I did a rear gear calculation and my final rear gear is now like 3.44 or so. Would adding more power offset the larger tires. I am going to add bolt on mods eventually, I am just curious if more horsepower is enough to get it to accelerate harder again. I don't want to change rear gears. This gearing thing is very confusing lol. People run these tires with automatic GTs with lower rear gear ratio so just trying to figure out if I am thinking correctly. Of course more horsepower is always good.
