    Well, I want both but only want to pay for 1 :D

    what would you get if you had the choice??

    What would you have more fun with?

    Gears (3:55's) Installed 450.00
    ZEX (75-125 Kit) 479.99 I can Install

    what would you get?

    Also, how much would gears drop my 1/4 mile time??

    I would get gears. Why are you only looking at 3.55's? I would go with at least 3.73's on a na car.

    Do gears, but not 3.55's. Do 3.73's or 4.10's

    3.73's for a 5 spd, 4.10's for an auto :nice:

    Now if your running a blower, you'd probably want 3.55's for a 5spd, 3.73's or 3.90's for an auto

    Gears will lower your quarter mile by about 5 tenths. You'll definitely feel it.

    That is when you put a taller tire on you car. lol. He dident say anything about a SC so that is why I suggested them, but I did not say you must get 4.10's.

    I realize that but you have to think about future mods to so your not going back and changing everything on the car b/c you dident set it up right in the first place. If you know for sure that your never going to put on a power adder then go for 4.10s. if your wishy washy on a power adder then stick to 3.55's or 3.73's b/c 4.10s in a blow car are worthless.

    I say gears also. You said that you only wanna pay for one. That sounds to me like you are on a budget. When I bought my Zex kit I then had to buy a bunch of other parts to go with it(Bottle warmer, Purge kit, nitrous pressure gauge, window switch, sparkplugs, and a new intank fuel pump).

    LOL I guess it's decided, GEARS!

    I wanted to be conservative w/ 3:55's but now i guess i'll go with the 3:73's

    will i have to buy the aluminum driveshaft to go along with it?


    Oh, and do they really drop a hold half second in the 1/4???

    3.73's or 4.10's, depending on what your driving habits are... personal opinion ... zex=rice
