    I have 3.08's in my car now and I ran 14.8@93mph. What do you think I would run with 3.73's ? (street tires)

    I am assuming that you have an automatic. So i would say at least use 3.73's maybe even 4.10's. If you do much long distance driving then you prob want to stay with 3.73. I love my gears it adds a lot of get up and go to the car.

    4.10s for autos or 3.73s for sticks. i would assume you will run mid-14's to low 14's

    Gears are probally the biggest kick in the pants you could do for that car.

    I had ran 14 8 with my 3.08 and when i installed my 3.73's dropped me into the low 14s. i also had the subframes installed at the same time so maybe helped a little but best money i think i have spent yeat. :nice:
