    Allright! I know you guys have beaten this topic to death. I live in Puerto Rico and my driving conditions are similar to Cali. most of my driving is in the mountains and some traffic jams. I'm looking for a gearing to do some spirited canyon driving. My car is stock with a t5. Would love your input.

    If he cares about worse MPG he mite regret it.
    I had FRPP 4.10's in my 96 GT and got terrible gas mileage.
    I wish I had got FRPP 3.73's to begin with because I care about
    gas mileage that was my daily driver.

    I am going to go with 3.73 or a set of 4.10 just b/c i have a VERT with a AODE. I think i am swaying to a 4.10 set FRPP.
    If you want to do some traffic and mountain driving i would say a set of 3.73

    Damn, I make one comment and the "No HP crew" is up in arms. Take it easy, it was just an observation and nothing more.

    Everyone has to start somewhere and I was a 287rwhp guy for awhile then I maxed out my credit cards and waala......5 blocks later and a sixth on its way and you too can make 600rwhp. Believe me, I made my share of mistakes.

    See ya

    What are your long term goals for the car? If you plan on putting a blower on you may want to consider 3.55, buting in 4.10 or higher then buting a blower on will only kill the car gear wise (you'll run out of gear and fast).
