    well, after 7 hours i finally got the gears in, and they kick ass!!! :dancing6: :dancing6: :dancing6: the install wasnt as hard as i thought it was going to be, its just really time consuming. so far so good with no whining or clunking or anything like that. im really glad i did it myself cause i saved a lot of money, and i didnt have to part with my baby. hopefully ill be able to make it to the track soon and get some times. couldnt be any happier with the 4.10's. :)

    Props to you. Ive always heard gears were something you pay to have a shop install. Im a wannabee Mechanic and i wish i had the tools and balls to do that.

    thats what i always thought too, and what i was going to do but then i didnt have money to spare and the gears were just sitting there staring me in the face so i had to get them in. im really glad i did it though. i loved the hands on knowledge i gained from it.

    yeah, i was thinking about 4.30's for a while, but im throwing a procharger on as soon as i get the money, so i think the 4.10's will be perfect.

    With a power adder the 430's probally would be over kill, but for N/A they are the ultimate gear for a high winding 4 valve. 8)

    dial indicator to measure the backlash, micrometer to measure the shim thinkness, inch pound and foot pound torque wrenches, bearing puller, and your basic hand tools. oh.... and a 3/4" drive ENORMOUSLY HUGE impact wrench. that pinion nut was such a bitch to tighten :rant:
