    do NOT waste money rebuilding the stock rear... it's very weak... but a 12 bolt or 9" rear... if you plan on making your car a head/cam car then go with 4.10's... if you plan on supercharger/turbo then go with either 3.42(stock ratio) or 3.73...

    most people prefer 4.10 over 3.73s... and depending on the size of the cam you'll need 4.10 to retain streetability (along with the tune)...

    what's wrong with the motor???

    you'd be fine running a turbo or SC... jsut as long as you keep the boost under 8psi you'll be fine... check out the forced induction section... lots of great info in there...

    most kits come complete with new injectors and fuel pump unless you get a tuner kit...

    3.73s are stronger than 4:10s and it makes 6th gear good for cruising. Might be worth considering.

    So if I go for either 3.73 or 4.11 wat do I have to change?
    Do I have to replace the axles?

    you can swap the reluctor wheels from your rear to the transplant or have the traction control deleted.
