Your not in 1st for long, much easier driving in the city.

ADM did the install, don't know if they have anymore.

well i wont be doing 3.91 if its a 600rpm increase at 60. my car is between 60 and 65 all the time 75 on the hiway. whats the math. because in my truck if you went from 3.42 to 4.10 it wasn't anywhere near 600rpm.

3.91s in an automatic SS with a mild converter will get you about .5 - .6 in the quarter. 21st Century advised me against 3.91s in an SS manual tranny car, The 3.01 first gear with a 3.91 rear gear is just TOO low.

The auto tranny has a lot lower 1st gear than the manual tranny SS.
3.91s are the factory gear for the manual 1LE Camaro.

Just learned the 1LE tranny gearing is different. Pontiac G8 GXP is the same as the SS though and they come with 3.70 gears with shorter tires.
