As far as gears go, I hear conflicting reviews. Some say that I'll get better times with a 3;73 for an auto and others will tell me that my ET will increase because of where the gears shift if I had 3,31's or just left in the stok 3'15's.
I need some assistance and clarification with the gearing info.
While a converter is more expensive it will yield much better results over gears. I've been 11.79 with the stock converter, stock intake, and stock 3.15's. It's about choosing the right parts.
