    So, if I have the 2:73's I should see a huge improvement in my take off power? I have so far added the SLP Loudmouth exhaust the Sun Coast Ram Air hood with the High flow direct filter kit. I have just purchased the two sets of gears, a hyper tech programmer and a 100 shot Nitros kit. I also recently added a set of 17 x 9.5 and 11's on the back of TT2's with Goodyear 315's on the back. My father has a 91 twin turbo stealth, that I need to beat. I think that I will have the 3:73's put in.

    u will prolly pick up 4-6 mph in the 1/4 and the 100 shot is going to be a major help man.

    What is the overall benefit with the 3:73's? Will I have more low end power, mid range or just the 4 to 6 Mph in a 1/4? This is the first time I had a car that I wanted to play with like this.

    Thanks, Jeff

    I have 4.10's in my A4, at 70 it runs about 2600 rpm's. With my 2.73's it ran about 1800.

    i think with the 4.11's tho you'd be going into OD in the 1/4th

    How do you like the 4:10's or are the 4:11's not sure, anyway is it real easy to do a burn out? With my 2:73's I can't do a burn out from a dead stop very easy.

    I love how they pull. Burnouts are very easy now. I think a 3.73 would be a pretty good gear also.
