    Not only that but I get annoyed running around in 3rd and 4th gear down side streets. I just want to use 2nd and 3rd around town and 4th and 5th on the highway. Too much shifting gets old.

    Although no street driving I saw very little difference in my 4.10s, from the 3.73s. My sisters 3.55 car seems to be a well mannered street car and if you don't mind driving in the 2500-3000 RPM range a bit, I stay in 3rd gear on most side roads.

    To start get some tires and gears first. 2.73's to 3.55's or 3.73's and a Nitto Drag radial could get that 2.2 60ft to a 2.0 or 1.9 if you're good. That will cut the time at the 1320 mark by quite a bit. I'm guessing 14.20's 14.30's.

    I too have 3.55's and love them, and I must say I loved my 3.27's I had before :eek:

    I know, outside of the normal thinking. But I got phenom fuel mileage, and barely noticed a difference from the .27 to .55 and still pulled off great times at the track. With just a Magnaflow CB and the 3.27's I pulled off a 14.2 with my fox... :shrug:
