4.10 gears on a v6? Advice plz?

Ok, 98 v6, true dual flows. How much of an improvement are 4.10s? I need to know anything you can tell me.

How big of a deal to install?
Speed/Acceleration improvement?
Cost?
Stress engine (auto)?
Good for everyday driver?

My car is an everyday driver, but I tend to race at any chance I can get and would love an advantage over other sixbangers. Help if you can. Thanks

I have a 2002 V6 with 4:10's... I love them I can take GT's off the line, and sometimes win...

I installed them myself, it was not really that hard... To get them installed is going to be $200-$350.... My car is an everyday driver... at 100MPH the engine is at 3400 RPM's...

I have not really seen a decrease in MPG... since the difference in the highway and city balanced out well... i get aroung 25MPG average...

Might be a little much for a manual, but it depends on what percentage you drive on the highway.

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.

Gears alone won't get you there, but the WILL help you out alot, if that's your goal.

If you plan non-N2O power adder, though, it's best not to touch the gears too much.

If you've got an auto, you're gonna need another 300-400 dollars for the chip or programmer -after the install and the gears -it's not a cheap option.

Go for efficiency 1st, and use the savings for what you want to do.

What have you done so far?

You have a 1998?

you can

1) pick up a set of 25% Underdriver pulleys for $69-$85

2) install 1.8 Roller Rockers $250

3) Pick up a DenseCharger for $60-70.

Do some porting work on your intake or swap to a split port intake & headsfor big power. $500+

How much hp are those densechargers supposed to add on a stock 99 v6. And where can you get them? I was considering getting those roller rockers from morana in my earlier post and a BBK cold air fenderwell intake. But would the densecharger be better than the BBK?
