Talking Richmond 4.33 Rear End Gears Available At Apex Motorsports!!!



Richmond Gear, the world leader in developing high performance gear sets, has announced the release of a new option for 2010 Camaro owners, 4.33 ratio gear sets! Like the 3.73s and 4.10s that proceded them, the 4.33s were developed specifically to improve the performance of the new Camaro. By upgrading the factory 3.45s in a stock M6 equipped Camaro to the Richmond 4.33s you will realize an equivalent gain of approximately 25% or 105 rear wheel lb.-ft. of torque.

Our first shipment of these gear sets is already on the way. The 4.33s, like our 4.10s and 3.73s, are eligible for a $120 instant rebate when the Richmond installation kit is ordered at the same time. Add the Pfadt Race Engineering rear differential bushings to the package and get a $130 instant rebate.

CLICK HERE for more information or to place an order.

4.33s are going in a Camaro5 member's car tomorrow. Keep an eye out for his first impressions.

do you know if the 3.73 / 4.10 / 4.33 gears will go into the manual V6 rear diff, or what is needed to run these options for the V6?

We recently had a V6 customer order the 3.73s to test this theory but according to Richmond they will not work in the V6 differential regardless of the transmission. They said that the 3.55s are specifically designed for the V6 and the others ratios are V8 specific. Until it is proven otherwise I have to defer to the manufacturer.

So im a complete noob when it comes to gears and transmission talk. I was doing a little reading up on your guys richmond 4.33 gears, and Im a little skeptical about that huge gain in torque. Is it that noticeable? And as far as the install goes what all would it require as other parts go?

There is nothing to be skeptical about, the gains from swapping to a more aggressive gear set are widely known and the change is very noticeable. We recommend the Richmond full installation kit because many of our customers are discovering surprising amounts of wear when they are making their swaps. While the rear end is out it is also the perfect time to upgrade your rear differential bushings as well but its not required.

Is there any difference as far as drivability? Will I need a new tune to compensate for the new gear ratio, and how will effect power as far as low end or top end? Sorry for all the questions ha

The only impact on driveability is cruising RPM, the lower the gear (which is expressed as a higher number; 4.33 is lower than 4.10) the higher RPM you will run at cruising speeds. Depending on whether you have a manual or an auto and how you plan to use your car has a big impact on what ratio you should be looking at.

The only adjustments needed are to have your speedo recalibrated but a performance tune isn't needed.

The gears will have a significant impact across the entire power band. Acceleration is dramatically improved. You will lose a few MPH off the top end but does it really matter that your car tops out at 155 instead of 160?

You will get about 5% more improvement from the 4.33s, but you will run a couple of hundred RPMs higher at cruising speed. This all assumes your car is a M6, if you have an auto I would not recommend 4.33s.

For the A6 I recommend 3.73s for most applications due to the more aggressive gearing of the automatic transmission. By upgrading the factory 3.27s in the stock A6 equipped Camaro SS to the 3.73s you will realize an equivalent torque gain of approximately 15% or 61.5 rear wheel lb.-ft. of torque. Cruising RPM at 70 MPH only increases from about 1800 to 2050.

I have a 6 speed so the 4.33 is the way to go?

Roughly at say 80mph in 6th gear would you be around 2500?

It doesnt make a difference if its superchared correct?

Thank You
