Since you have an auto...you need a new tune written by Doug for the 4.10's. It's mandatory. I only mention this cuz you didn't...so i'm just throwing it out there for anyone else who wants to do a gear swap in the auto.

I take it this goes for the 3:73's also? I thought all you had to do was change the SCT programmer to 3:73's?

+1, I definitely second that. I'm in a manual, but 4.10s make the car feel much more right to me. Around here the fastest you can get on the highway is mostly 55 or 65 or 70 in some rare places. I've never felt the 4.10's were 2 high up in RPMs on the highway. I still enjoy dropping it into 4th and being right in the fat part of the power band.

you can change all of that from your tuner if the tune is unlocked for you to make changes.

I've got 3.55 right now and cruise a lot around town at 40-45mph in 4th gear. I'm guessing with 4.10 I will probably do the same thing. The car will just run a few hundred rpm higher. No big deal. If anything it'll sound better that way.

Waiting for Mishri to get his done. I want to see if there is any gear whine. If it's not bad then I might consider getting mine done by the same shop.

With Doug's tunes you NEED to get him to modify your tune. It has to do with how differently he sets things up than a lot of other tuners.

aren't his tunes locked so you can't adjust parameters before loading the tune? i had his tunes a long time ago when i first got my car but forgot how he had them saved.
