I'm downgrading from 4.10's in my 1995 GT AODE Vert in order to attain higher mph in the quarter mile. I originally was going to go with 3.55's, but that recieved much backlash from friends and experts. I am now considering 3.73's. The AODE has a 3000 stall convert, and a Transgo shift kit. The motor is armed with aluminum heads, Cobra intake, custom cam. It will be recieving a 150 shot on the track with 26 inch Mickey Thompson ET streets. According to calculations, 3.73 gears with 26 inch tall tires will allow me to go 5500 rpms in 3rd (1:1) at 114 mph. That is nearly perfect for my goal. On the street, however, will 3.73's turn the convertible into a slug on wheels with a ragtop? I want to still fend off cars all motor, will the new gears severely hinder that?
