If I put 3.91's in the LFX, can I beat a stock SS in the 1/4?

And will the 3.91 's cruise at around 2,100 @70mph?

No, gears don't add any power. But it does feel like you gain a lot of torque. You'd need a lot more if you got the ipf supercharger you would be able to beat a stock ss

I think the six is geared pretty well from the factory but I don't think you'll pick up that much time.

You'll get more torque down low and probably have a better overall 1/4 mile time, but your top end will run out more quickly and will likely require a shift into 4th to run the 1/4 mile which will hurt a bit.

No again.

Get the RX super charger, or single turbo, or twin turbo, and you will all day long.
