    Best Stall/Gears for MS3?

    I need to know what Stall/Gears work best for the MS3?

    It'll be a weekend driver (high way n around town) and I'm days away from placing my order with TSP. I've always like the feel of 3.73s and I'm trynna perserve low end torque, so lemme know guys!

    No need to worry about low end torque with a stall... I would say 373s are perfect and youll probably want atleast a 3600-4000rpm one.

    agreed. i missed the part about it just being a weekend cruiser. Had 4.10s in mine for awhile when it was auto and they were awesome but highway gas mileage suffered and i drive mine a lot so i went to 3.73s

    i was planning to just keep my stock 3.42s when i did heads(5.3) and cam (ms4) and 4000 stall. Would it be really shitty to drive with those gears? its not a DD

    im still planning on going 12 bolt however i wasnt going to do it right off. didnt wanna waste the mony on the stock rear

    Stock A4 gears are 3.23's. The 3.42's are for the M6. If your planning on a 12 bolt then I wouldn't worry about throwing money at the 10 bolt.

    the z28 had 2:73s or optional 3:23s but the 3:23s were stock on all ss packaged cars.

    i think that is right, also a 3600 or higher would be a good stall with that cam.

    Don't waste money on the 10 bolt with anything more than bolt ons. I've already destroyed the rear once in this car. I'm just keeping it in till I do the 6sp swap and then I'll do the 9".

    I have a ms3 with a vig 3500 and 373s and it runs strong, but as some people will tell you the vig stalls seem to stall out higher than they are rated
