What Gears???

ok guys, im going to buy some gears... but i dont know what ones to get i have a 2002 V6.. all i have done to the car is the true duel exhaust, and a CAI... also i was wondering if i do get the 3.73's what will they do... i dont really know how the gears work... also if you could tell me what the difference between the 3.73's and the 4.10... i use the car to drive everyday, but i like to race... thanks!!!!

if manual go with 3.73's if auto go with 4.10's If you use the interstate alot go with 3.55's, it would be benificial to get a FR T-lok to go with it as the same time becuase you would have to get the differential pulled inorder to install the gears.

Yea i have a auto... but what are the pros and cons of getting gears... like this is one thing that i dont know anything about. also, how much am i looking at to get them installed... since i cant do it myself (lack of tools)...

figure 800 dollars after it's all said and done.

you'll gain some in city mileage, specifically stop and go traffic, you'll lose a bunch in highway mpg.

more wear on your valvetrain, less on your transmission.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
