    Gear changeout.

    I wanna change the gears to get better acceleration, but I'm not too familiar with it. What do you guys recommend. I heard 4.10 is good. What else needs to be changed?? As far as after the gear changeout??

    410 is good for M6 373 for A4. You should get a full installation kit with your gear set and have it installed by a professional experienced in gear installs.

    That's it?? I can just swap out gears and I don't need to mess with nothing else?? Seems easy.

    The installation kit will have a full set of bearings. It seems easy but set up is a bitch get it wrong and your gears will make noise like crazy. They also need to be broken in properly.

    Do you have a magnetic base and dial indicator to measure back lash, a 0-1" micrometer to measure shim thickness, a breaker bar with a 4 foot extension for the crush collar, a dial style inch pound torque wrench to measure pinion drag, a 0-100 pound torque wrench for the bearing caps and ring gear? Yep... should be easy.
