AODE?? 4.10s or bust. [8D]

Its kinda a toss-up between 3.55s and 3.73s. The difference is miniscule, if you measure by seat of the pants feel.

Go with 3.73s for the 5-speed. 4.10s with the auto.

The C4 has about the same 1st gear ratio as the AOD, but no overdrive. If it sees any highway time, I would do 3.55s or 3.73s. If its just a weekend racer, than install some 3.90s or 4.10s.
