    I have a 95gt 5spd with 3.55 gears in it right now, I was thinking maybe about replacing them with 4.10's or maybe 3.90's just wondered what you guys thought.

    3.90s or 4.10s. I have 3.55s and there a waste of time and money lol, 3.73 minimum IMO. Are you thinking about supercharging it down the road? If you dont have any major plans then I would do 4.10s

    4.10s' Are CRAZY if you do ANY highway driving. With Minimal mods 3.73 on a 5spd car seem to be the preference. I am running 3.55 as I do alot of highway. Running the 1/4 I am crossing in 3rd gear at 6grand. 96 mph. Personal choice. but if I didn it again I'd go 3.73.

    I say if you stay N/A then go with 3:73 (4:10 if Auto), and if you go blown go for 3:55. Just my .02
