you should put rpms at speeds with different gears. top of 4th, highway speeds in 5th. that always gets asked.

I think this is a great idea.

It will be so much easier to post a link to a noob rather than explain **** 15 times in one day.

True but who's "opinion" will be posted in regards to ratio selection. No true 1%er would ever recommend 3.73's over 4.10's. On the other hand all the ricer roll racers and dyno-queens will always go with 3.73's because they know that 4.10's are just 'undriveable" in the first 2 gears. Then you have the truly unstable that think 3.90's are the answer. Get my point?

Yes, and thats why Im goin to put to the best of my knowledge everything I know about each gear (stock, 373,410s) and the post will not be closed so others can add their thoughts as well.

I have done tons or 8.8 rebuilds, a bunch of 373 to 410 swaps, and whatnot so I believe the stuff in the sticky will be able to help the majority.

Here are a couple of gearing and HP "calculators" from my site:

How fast can I go in each gear?

How much HP does it take to go how fast?

+1 It doesnt matter how many stickies we have. Hell We really already have a whole Sticky Thread about bolt ons but theres still bolt on threads around here.

If anything we need some suspension stickies, and we prolly do have some i just havent looked yet.

so 3.73s are ricer gears? get the ƒuck out jay, some cars need a less aggressive gear, thats why high hp cobras are running 3.55s instead of the God's gear, 4.10s.

why not get 4.56s jay? 4.10s are for ricers...maybe you dont understand how that works with a 300rwhp car

The fastest 03-04 Cobras aren't running 3.55's. If my car was a N/A 1/8 mile only car it would have 4.56's. It is not so I run the 4.10 that is a compromise gear for the 1/4 running N/A and nitrous. Please know what you're talking about before doubting me next time , junior!
