Talking 4.10 or 3.73 Gear & Install Kit Combo

We are extending our Gear & Install Kit Combo!



Richmond Gears in either the 4.10:1 or 3.73:1 ratio are a hot mod for the 2010 Camaro 6.2L. However, most of you already know that the availability of the Richmond installation kits can be a bit inconsistent.

We have tons of install kits in stock that use Timken and Koyo bearings, so there is no more waiting to get your gears installed. The best part is that if you purchase the gears and the install kit together you get an instant rebate of $120! All you have to do is add both products to your cart to get the discounted price.

Our inventory levels vary from day to day, but we currently have 11 sets of 4.10 gears and 14 sets of 3.73's. We have more than enough install kits for all of those! If you want to wait on the Richmond kit (though I am not sure why, I am not sure Richmond produces anything in the kit) then you may have a bit of a delay, as those part numbers come and go. we currently have 16 on order, but we have no date for delivery.

Check out the gears by CLICKING HERE.

What is the problem with the Richmond Gear Kits? The information I was given is that Richmond must wait on GM or the GM supplier to get the seals for the kit, but are having a tough time getting those with regularity. That, coupled with the high demand has caused a shortage.

Fortunately, we have plenty of the master install kits on the shelf and you won't have to wait to get your gear swap going!

Paul do you recomend a full or half install kit and why, thinking of installing 4.10 gears in my 2010 2ss/rs m 6 and is the speedometer difficult to get recalibrated?

Speedometer calibration can be done in a few ways, though each of those is essentially the same; tuning. A handheld tuner, a speedo calibrator or a custom tune can all be used to adjust for the changes.

As for full or half kit, I would always get a full kit when doing an install. Half kits don't have all the bearings and seals, and there's no reason not to use the full install kit and all new components, except for cost. However, I subscribe to an old school philosophy of modding and that is to not do mods that you can't afford to do correctly. to me, a full kit is a no brainer.

What is the usual price including installation that speedshops charge for the gear swap?

Also, has anyone had any experience when they recalibrated the regular speedometer did the digital also get reprogrammed to match?

It varies depending on where you go, I've heard quotes from $350-$700.

Chase Im having a hard time finding a good shop in my area to do a gear swap.. If we only had a step by step video instruction Im sure im not the only one that could do it.. Maybe you could market that.. Just an Idea.. Very frustrated with the lack of pro mod shops in this area..

I'm not interested in getting sued when someone's rear end grenades and they decide it was my install video that was to blame. An air intake or an exhaust system is one thing, but there is a certain amount or art involved in rear end gears.

You are right, there seems to be few options for you Naples guys. There are some good shops in Florida if your willing to make a road trip. You may have to look in Fort Lauderdale or Orlando.

Hypertech makes a hand held speedo recalibrator if you wanted to buy the equipment. If not, a performance shop that is set up to perform dyno tunes or a wheel and tire shop probably have the equipment also. A speedo recalibration isn't making any adjustments that will impact your warranty because you aren't changing any performance parameters.

I have the L99 and I was wondering what would be the advantages of going to 3.73 gears?

Thanks,

Nick

Faster acceleration is what it's all about. The lower gearing gets things moving dramatically faster.

Other than the actual ratios itself; What are the biggest seat of the pants differences that you will notice between the 3.73 and 4.10?

For the average M6 SS the 4.10s are the biggest bang for the buck. They provide a significant improvement in acceleration but without sacrificing daily drivablity. The 3.73s are better than stock but there isn't really much reason not to go for the 4.10s in a bolt on only SS.

For an M6 SS that is putting higher horsepower levels to the pavement, think 550-600+ RWHP, the 3.73s offer the more aggressive gearing without going so low that they create a traction issue.

For the A6 SS, which has a more aggressively geared transmission than the M6, the 3.73s are the go to gear.

Nick, was wondering if you installed the 373's in your L99? I am thinking about doing the same and i'm trying to find out if it's worth the money.

Not sure who you are referring to, but we have had dozens of customers install 3.73s in the L99 cars and have yet to have anyone be dissapointed. By upgrading the factory 3.27s in the stock A6 equipped Camaro to the Richmond 3.73s you will realize an equivalent gain of approximately 15%, or 61.5 rear wheel lb.-ft. of torque.
