    Depends if you are manual or automatic.

    I'm an A4 and have 3.73. ...didn't go with 3.91 because I'd have run out of third gear before I finished a 1/4 mile. The 3.73 works very well and made me drop .2 off my ET

    The only thing I would add would be going to a taller tire like a 28 tire with a 15' wheel that would help out with traction as well as the gear on the top end.As some of you know I have been runing a 275x10x15 on the rear as a drag wheel with MT drag radials car has went 134 mph with stock gearing,not ran out of gear yet,I checked my logs car was at 6000rpm in third at 130mph going through traps,1st and second gear change was 6800rpm,but I have twin turbos and well over 700rwh closer to 800,gears help with lower hp,more power one makes less gear one needs. O by the way stock rear gear for the GTO is 346 ratio.
