Default Preferred Bama Tune after 4.10s?

I've been running a Hybrid tune (which the jury is still out on) for a while now and recently installed 4.10s. I realize this is nitpicky and probably isn't going to make that much difference, but should I be changing tunes now?

I've heard mixed reports here that the Race tune still offers the sharpest throttle response and my rationale is that the gears are my low end power and I can use the Race tune to add that extra bit to the top-end.

Thoughts?

Running the 93 Race tune and FRPP 4.10 gears, you will be tearing out of the hole everywhere you go! LOL!

Fun combination, but expensive at the pump LOL!

I don't think you need to change tunes. 4.10's and the Race tune is a great combination! Your car is going to have great acceleration and throttle response with this set up.

This really comes down to preference, though. Let the Bama team know if you'd like to change tunes! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

Just make sure to adjust your speedo. If you like your tune now I'd just stay with it.
