Hey everyone. I am about to order gears for my 96 automatic GT and can't decide between 4.10's or 4.30's. I am not terribly worried about gas mileage since I have a truck that i drive around most of the time and the car won't be driven daily. Since I plan on keeping the car N/A for a long time, I am considering 4.30's. Do you guys think this is too much gear for a basically stock car? I know 4.30's would be fun but I don't want to over rev my car too much. Thanks in advance for any help given.

I think 4.30's would be to much for an auto. I don't run mine hard in o/d, and with 4.30's it seems like you would have too.

With my 4.10's and the o/d off I hit the rpm's quick.

Go with the 4.30's. It will be perfect with your auto and for the 4.6. Later on if you can swing it, get a good converter too. You WILL NOT be disapointed.

4.30's and an auto might be perfect for a full boogy N/A car....with a good TQ Convertor and your shift points readjusted you would definately get that heavy car going in a hurry.

I don't think there is enough between the 4:10 and 4:30's to complain about the steeper gerars.

Yea but dude we are more used to a longer RPM range and totally different power band. 4:30s in a basically stock auto GT will be overkill. Maybe if the car were built up some more, or saw primarily track use. I say for a GT, with what? 5300rpm redline, 4:10s = purrrrfect.
