Now, today I got into it a little (gas peddle 3/4 of the way down) while coming onto the highway and YES, the car took off in a "neck snapping" manner. I also went to pass someone on another road at about 40-45mph and the ability to do so was MUCH easy than before.

Highway isn't that bad.....the high RPM is something to get used to, feels a little odd.

Have not gotten a speedo gear yet, so I have NO idea where my speeds are at.
Gear "break-in" is debated just like the 5w30 vs 5w20, back pressure from exhaust, and which CAI is best... everyone has their opinions.

Let'r eat and post a vid.

If anything, run them through a few heat cycles.
Go do a WOT pull through third and fourth! WTF are you waiting for?

Scared maybe? Not sure.

I raced a C5, on the street of course, the same day I got my car back from having the gears put in.

The guy who did my gears let it run in 1st gear for a while with the car up on the lift; did that a couple times over the course of a morning to heat cycle them a little and then took it on a short test drive to make sure all was good. I picked the car up, drove it nice for about 50 miles until I met up with the earlier mentioned C5.

Was just a little light to light action that didn't make it beyond 3rd gear, but to finish the story, yes I smoked him. Don't ask me how, maybe his car was an auto, maybe he was being a vagina, but I was going for it and I know he was too and two pulls in a row I got him.

Like Rabbit said, take it out and let it eat.

Well now I have to wait until it's dry. Been raining since yesterday. Wet roads were a problem before...NOW with 4.10s.

Hey Guys,

Another question. Besides the speed being off (Speed Cal on the way), do I need a new tune with the gears? Would it add any value to change the shift points? Anything?

I probably missed that somewhere then, my bad! How does it shift? Are the shift points too high? I believe our transmissions shift depending on the rpm's versus the throttle, so I don't think you need a tune, though a tune would probably give you nicer and firmer shift points.
