It was recommended to me to wait until SC is installed, learn to drive with that, and then decided on gears after can fully control vehicle with new 150rwhp's added.
Good, luck it's gonna' be a huge thrill.
Calbert is right, it's going to be a hand full. It is going to be critical to have the proper supporting mods in place. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up. Thanks for your order.

This is not a DIY project. Even for someone who knows what they are doing this is a very involved 6-8 hour job and there is a world of difference between a good gear install and a bad one. You need to leave this one to a professional.

So if you can upgrade the factory 3.27s in the stock A6 equipped Camaro SS to the Richmond 3.73s..then would you be able to do the A6 for the V6...Because we have the same Ratio as the A6 SS?

The ratio is the same but the rear end itself is different. The V6 M6 can use the SS components but the A6 can not. There are Richmond 3.55s that are available specifically for the V6 Camaro though.

How would 3.73's affect gas mileage in a blown L99?

Little if any. We typically see a 2 MPG loss at most. With the stock gears you should be running about 1800 RPM at 70 MPH and with the 3.73s you would be looking at about 2050 RPM.

The gears already shipped and are scheduled for delivery on Wednesday. The install kit should be out the door tomorrow and it should be there Thursday. Once the install kit ships you will get an email with the tracking info.

I keep going back and forth on ordering either the 4.10 or 4.33 for my LS3. I like the 4.33 increase in power but everyone here seems to be ordering the 4.10. Which is why I am so hesitant. Is there any reason to be worried about a difference as far as drivability/potential problems?

The only draw back is that the lower ratio will result in higher RPM at cruising speed. Either one is a great option but if you spend a lot of time running the interstate you may want to go 4.10.
