the nice thing about having the dealer do it is they are equipped with whatever they might need without having to buy a kit with extra stuff you may not need.

as long as he is trained and certified for it. big dealers have guys that specialize in different systems and parts of the car. like a trim guy, a rear end guy, a suspension guy, etc.

Your car will still be assigned to have whatever gear ratio it came with. If the gears fail they have a 12m/12k warranty. The other parts in the rear diff will still have the remainder of powertrain warranty if dealer ignores the fact that you changed the ratio. The official word from the general is going to be "if you want warranty on 1le parts then you have to buy a 1le camaro".

So according to LPE the 3.93 gear will run the engine 13% faster in 6th gear so top end speed will drop along with gas mileage. I wonder if it's possible to change 5th and 6th gear in the manual trans? Then you would have the complete 1LE gear package.

You can't change them individually. The .56 ratio is generally the longest one available anyways.

Mileage isn't going to hurt much. RPMs will go up right at 200 RPMs at 70 MPH. 13% is 211 RPMs at 70. Will one even notice? Instead of driving 75, go 73.

Top speed is in 5th gear, not 6th gear.

And a supercharger. I don't see just tuning adding the kind of power it takes to make 6th the high speed gear. In the Vettes, it takes the LS9 to have the power to pull top speed in 6th. In the Camaros, it takes a blower.

What I meant was removing the top speed limiter (155mph) with the tune. Then maybe top speed would be in 6th gear.

This thread is truly awesome!

Any updates on anyone ordering and/or installing the axles and hubs?

Nope. 6th gear is too long to pull. 5th gear nets a higher top speed.

Does anyone know what kind of power the 1LE axles are rated for? I haven't found any info on that.

426 through a 3.91 final drive and MM6 Tremec.

The SS M10 Tremec has a shorter first gear, so it will be interesting to see if a stripper SS could holeshot a 1LE. The MM6's close ratio gears though would probably even up or better the run after a few gear changes.

It's more than just a hp rating when considering axles. It's matching the torque at the axles to an axle with just the right twist properties. You don't want too much or too little, which is why you see different axles on each side of an OE application. They've tested out the optimum axle for each side. If you just through hugely oversized 1400 hp axles in both sides, in an otherwise stock driveline, expect to break diffs, driveshafts... The axles will probably hold just fine, but now your moving the twist/wrap up to other parts that weren't designed for it. Getting the right axle twist is also key to avoiding wheelhop.

Another thing to look into is any mods done to the 1LE driveshaft, such as bigger bolts. Probably a good reason those got upgraded also.
