What gears to use?

What gears should I put in my Camaro.

Currently my best time was 11.98 @ 116

Normally I am running around 12.6 @ 108 and just getting into 4th gear.

I am debating on 3.9x or 4.11 but just not sure which to do. My redline is 6500 after my modifications.

i plan to do aam 3:91's...any bigger than that ive heard isnt good for a daily driver ( especially a highway one). So i think thats what im going with..will go with 3.73's at the least..but the 3:91's are what im aiming for.

Give this article from our blog a read:

Swappin' Gears

We have found that 4.11 is a great option for LS3 dual use (street/strip) applications and the 3.73 or 3.90 for L99 Camaros.

How tall is your rear tire? 4.11 is a LOT of gear and makes 1st gear pretty short if you are an M6.
