Stop by and talk to the guys at Motive Gears.

They are about 3 to 4 months out on the 3.90 and 4.10

Ask them when I am going to get my 3.27 back.....er never mind I will wait for the 4.10

Tell them they need to pull the trigger.

Robin,

If you change the rear end gears does the ECM or tranny computer need to be reprogrammed?

3.90 gear in theory should take stock car from 378wHP to 427wHP
because gear 13% shorter?
and speedometer will be off by about 7mph

This is not the way it works. When you measure whp, the gearing is removed mathmatically.

But yes, you are putting more real power to the ground at the expense of not being able to stay in each gear for as long.

From reading posts from dyno runs with lower gears (higher numerically) they usually dyno a little lower.

Good read, but how does it equate to power? What would make a 3.73 perfect? How do you know speedo will be off by 7 mph?

Um no! The gear does not change the horsepower!
Also it's RWHP or rear wheel horse power.

gear change the multiplier to the torque to the ground.. hence why you accelerate faster..
