Chase,

Let's say we have a stock, off the showroom floor new manual 6-sp SS. Just by changing the stock gears to 4.10, roughly what can we expect a good driver to run the quarter mile in, as well as an improvement in 0-60mph?

My short term goal for my Camaro is to get it to be a solid 12.5 sec car in the quarter. If I added these gears to my car in addition to the simple mods I have done to my car (listed below), what else would needed to achieve this?

Unfortunately, no one has done a good before and after comparison but you will see a few 10ths. A stock SS with a good driver can run a high 12 so with the mods you have plus gears it is definitely possible.

Excellent. That's what I was hoping for. I am trying to drop some weight from the car as well by having the lighter rims I have, as well as change out some of the bulky parts of the car like the enormous mufflers, ha-ha. Hopefully all this will pay off. Thanks Chase.

Hey Chase, I hardly ever drive my car over 85. What gears would be the best for me (m6 v6) to really feel the push you into the chair acceleration and not break any axles or components of the drivetrain?

My avg speed is 24 mph since I drive on a mostly 20 mph - 45 mph speed limit city. And my gas mileage is 18 mpg, so not really worried about losing anything there.

Also, how do you get the speedo recalibrated?

Nevermind, just read that I would need a tune to recalibrate the speedo. That's a dealbreaker for me.

I know this is a old post but What's the difference in the 2 installation kits. Also I noticed that this deal is no longer active on your site so what's the likely hood of you having another package deal like this in the future.
