    You can't go too high with the stock tranny or you'll be shifting into 5th... Not recommended...

    I only recommend shifting into 5th when you are involved in an unsanctioned automotive confrontation with an LS1 car. :D

    I actually like my 4.10's. I have them in both my car and my wife's car. My car is used mostly for drag racing, so I will be going to a steeper gear.

    I have 3.73's in my 99 GT and I couldn't even tell it had gears. I was really disappointed.

    It has been said before; 3.73's to a 5.0 car are like 4.10's to a Modular car.

    The car won't go much past 150 (as in, you aren't gonna be beating out any Vettes at top speed...) no matter what the rear gearing is.

    Did you know that your top speed will actually slow down if you went to a 2.73 gear instead of the 3.73. The top end speed is actually faster with 3.73's than it is with factory 3.27's, and that may go for 4.10's too.. not sure, I know my 96 would do 160 and the 99 has a bit more power than the 96.
