I have a 94 gt.

How much top end will I loose if I put in some 3.55, or even 4.10's? And how much acceleration will I gain?

I had 4:10's in my 91 and the top end loss on the highway was pretty substantial, but the low end acceleration was friggin great!!!!! It was soooo much fun from light to light and at the track, but if you do alot of highway driving I wouldnt recommend it. If you have an automatic you can get away with it, but if youre running a T-5 id go with 3:73's

The 4:10's are more comfortable in the AOD cars

i'd say some traction will definitly be needed to match those 4.10's

WILL 4.10'S AFFECT GAS MILEAGE IN AN AOD? AND IF SO, HOW BAD?
