I hope 4.33s are the cure for my NA "lag".

I can stomp WOT on 5th at 2000rpm and its like having a HUGE OVERSIZED turbo.. just NOTHING happens, imagine 6th

Well, when I had the 4.33's my car was fairly stock and it made a HUGE difference. I firmly believe it would have pulled to redline in 6th.

Darn it, this discussion is making me want to say "screw it" and drop the money into the 9" now!

Tried a 3:70 now have a 4:33 and love it. 3:70 not enough for an M6. Shift 1,3,5 around town at 2000rp with big cam. It will still hit 130 in 4th gear. 4:33 adds 110 ft lb of torque over stock gear. Cruise at 2,050 rpm @ 70mph and get 22-23 mpg on highway. Lost about 3 mpg on highway over stock with cam and gear. Keep the stock clutch.

I had 4.10 ... Loved them. I switched to 3.70 when I got supercharged. For FI 3.70 are a better choice IMHO. 4.10 with FI made 1st practically unusable. Now, with out FI I liked my 4.10. The car was always in RPM go zone. It may be appropriate to note the 4.10 came out of my car minus most of their teeth and shredded.

I heard they are even putting 3.70 in the ZL1.

If you added 3.70 gears can you give any feedback about how they feel? Did you feel the difference going from the 3.45 to 3.70? Do you ever feel like you might want a little more gear? If you had it to do again would you have gone with 4.11 gears?
I wouldn't waste my time at all with 3.70's. I don't feel its a big enough jump over stock 3:45's. I would just shoot for 3:91's. Had mine installed at Lashway Performance last night and I couldn't be happier. Night and day difference. Oh I do have a TSP 231-236 cam and I am an M6.

I forgot about this thread and it's been a couple years since I posted. If anyone really cares, I ended up being talked into a 4.57 gear versus the 4.30....love em!

Can somebody post a ballpark estimate on the cost of a set of gears? I have an A6 so I'd probably go with the 3.70 gears.

A lot would depend on the gearing in the tranny as well. The 1LE comes with 3.91's but the tranny gears are different and from what I hear, the final gearing is about the same as a SS.

I'm on my phone right now and in Amarillo eating at the big Texan so I can't really respond other than I'm doing 2000rpm at 75mph in 6th.
