    +1 I absolutely love mine Go with Quick Performance racing (A store on ebay) http://stores.ebay.com/Quick-Performance-Racing best price and customer service around. Also, Get some 4.30 gears in there like I did you will not be sorry!!! 3.73's are a waste of money with a 6 speed. Go at least 4.10's.

    4.10's minimum on a M6... man!?! I am planning on doing gears eventually at the same time as a full rear-end... but I was thinking 3.73's ... just because my car isn't a daily driver but its driven as if it was... weekend warrior but my entire build is based around good street manners and where possible fuel economy... you guys seriously think 3.73's on an M6 isn't worth the time...?

    I have 4.30's Even with all my mods and mine being a DAILY DRIVER, I still get 23-24 MPG. Driving at 60 MPH in 6th I am turning around 1600 rpm.

    I had 3.90's in my 10 bolt and felt it was such a waste of time, money (I ended up with a 9" anyway), and not much of a performance change. SOOOO glad I went with the 4.30's in my 9".

    +1. If I could do it over I'd go with the 9 inch. My 12 bolt has givien me no trouble yet tho (knocks on wood). As for the gas milaege issue, it's not an issue. 4:10s didn't change my gas milaege hardly at all. Anyone that says go 3:73s for mpg issues is misinformed and prolly has never made the swap himself.
