well your top speed will be cut alot...hence 2.73..more top speed but slower acceleration=4.10 uBer fast acceleration but no top end..as for the whine..bring it to someone who knows how to install gears the "rite way" instead of the caveman way lol

My 01 ran 70 mph in 5th gear at 2000 rpm, which means in theory 6000 rpm in 5th would have been 210 mph. Now with 4.10's, I run 80 mph at 3000 rpm in 5th, so 6000 rpm would be 160 mph. So the computer still shuts me down before I hit redline. Not that I ever could drive it that fast, there are way to many deer on the roads around here.

so should i go with 3.73 gears then, because i still want to go top speed if i want to and i fill that 4.10 is to much of a sacrifice for just a little more acceleration.

You will never achieve the top speed anyway. For instance, my stock (theoretical) top speed is 222.06 on 3.55s and 235-55-17s. With 4.10s and 295-45-18s it's reduced to 192.27. Either way, I'm not getting there! And nobody else is either. :)

If your going to stay N/A go with the 4:10's... You'll have a lot more fun with 4:10's everyday, than hopping to someday go 200mph with the 3.73's.

and i believe that you can help to prevent the "whine" by going easy on your gears for the first few hundred miles to allow them to break in...
