If your running the stock T-3650 then your fifth gear ratio is .62:1. My T-45's is .67:1. The T-3650 with 4.10s runs approximately the same rpms in fifth as a T-45 (and T-5) with 3.73s. There's only a 2% difference. You cannot compare highway speed or gas mileage of gears without also taking into consideration the transmission.

373's are the perfect gear for the 1/4, in my opinion. 4th tops out around 122-126 with these gears, in my car anyway, which translates into the mid to high 11's. With 410's you will need more diameter in your tires, or you will run out of gear. I guess most people here know this though.
Just my humble opinion.
