Dear Franksgt,

I had 3.73s installed in my automatic because I eventually (in 2006) will have a Saleen installed...

From the stock 3.31 gears of the automatic, the 3.73s grab better and shift the power range of the motor up about 200 RPMs...

Better acceleration, but nothing that will "snap your neck"... I'm hoping that the supercharger will do that...

If you are running a 5 speed, then a 3.90 or 4.10 will be a better choice...

Dave

I know the transmissions have a little differnt ratios, but being that the auto is a 5-speed and the regualr manual both have as many gear... why the difference in ratios recomended?

I don't know if I will do the 4.10's in mine, I have to Drive I75 to ohio and some of that is at 80mph.

Anyone got the calculation handy to how many rpm that would be with stock 17" rims and tires?

WHINE COMES FROM A BAD INSTALL, OR YOU JUST GOT SOME FAULTY GEARS.
