    Should I get this fixed???

    So I have a 98 ss ls1 m6 I blew out the rear and took it to a shop to get it repaired he ask me what ratio I want. I told him whatever stock was he said ok and put 3.73(or is it 3.72) anyways after being on here and looking at different sites. It looks like 3.42 was stock is this going to be worse on gas or power? Should I just leave it I can't even really feel a difference but don't want to lose performance I was told that when you raise the ratio up you get more acceleration but lose top end and the car doesn't hit the higher rpm's like it should and you don't pull as hard in 3rd and 4th. Should I go back and have him put stock in like I asked or just stick with it because it's not really going to make a huge difference?

    You will get better acceleration but loose a little top end.

    With an M6, switching from 3.42 to 3.73 is not much of a difference, 3.42 to 3.90's or 4.10's will be a much bigger jump.

    I'd leave em. Your not gonna notice any difference in mpgs. You do need to have your speedomiter recalibrated tho as it's prolly not reading correctly any more.
