    4.30's, it will feel like you gained 50hp. Just make sure you get your speedo calibrated afterwards. Or else you will be going like 100 with your going 60.

    yeah it will make a difference in a good way, when you swap to the pi parts they will make power longer in the rpm band so winding those gears out will be way more fun.

    I had motives in my 91 and I liked them good gears supposadly they make GM's gears or so my Fbody buddy told me. Id imagine 100 would be easy to reach? There is a RPM - Speed - Gear caluclator somwhere out there, mabye try googling it?

    Btw if you end up getting them thru americanmuscle:
