From your the 3.73 would be the best choice, a lot depends on your engines capabilities. I have had good luck with 3.54's even with small V8 engines. Once you go higher than 3.50 you start to loose the hole shot but if you don't care how fast you get up there then higher gearing is the way to go, I've seen ratios as high as 2.73 with a V8, not too good on low end performance but very good fuel mileage in the cruise area. Hope this helped.

3.73 for gas mileage and 4.10 for performance. 3.73 would not be great for mileage. 3.50's are a better choice for a compromise ratio.

go with the 410- then leave the car at home when not racing and ride a bike to the grocery store
