Anyone on the fence needs to jump off it. I have had HPS do two gear swaps for me. Never had an issue either time. Gears and a stall are the best bag for the buck with an automatic IMO. Gears for a manual is also a must. Just a bump for my friends at HPS and a job well done.

No worry there Gent.

We'll look forward to earning your business.

Rapid Rick, if any of your customers questions the value of gears I'd be happy to chat with them. HPS has done sets on both of my Vettes, 3.90's and now 4.10's.

It really makes the car feel 500 lbs lighter. I also track all fuel since new in my vette, I lost 1 mpg after putting in the gears on my combined city/highway daily drive.

Here is an analysis I did some time ago that explains why gears make the car feel like it has a lot more horsepower at any given road speed.

And the track gains are unequaled...there is no way my stock clutch would have lasted 74000 miles and 494 launches like these (I get 1.4 60 foots at will) without 4.10 gears.

Difference between our cars and a A body GM with 4.10's is we have 6 gears...I had an A Body with 3.90's and it sucked gas like it was leaking. I only lost 1 mpg in city driving, probably 2-3 on highway as my best highway mileage is 22 with gears on straight highway trips at 80+ mph (gotta keep up with traffic on the FL turnpike).

Here is a dyno graph to prove it. This is my car compared to a guy with same cam, he had a FAST vs. my ported ls2 at the time. He had stock gears, I had 3.90's. It's not the same car, trust me.



How here is the same two dyno runs, with speed as the x axis vs. RPM. Note how much more horsepower I have at any given road speed due to the fact that the engine is spinning faster. Of course you could downshift and get this same effect, but trust me, it's not the same. Anyway, this is graphic proof of how gears make the car feel faster. You've given the engine a longer lever to work with....literally.

Default Rapid Rick, your customers might be interested in my bang for the buck mod analysis.

I found it interesting and thought I'd share.

See below. Each line represents progressive mods:
1. stock;
2. headers & tune (3.90 gears at same time);
3. G5x3 cam & .040 gaskets (11.4 compression);
4. FAST, and
5. used AFR 205 heads.

What strikes me is how dramatic the gains from headers and a tune were. Combined with the gears, it felt like a different car, and I got a full second + 10 mph in the 1/4 from those mods, from 12.9@108 to 11.8@118. The car was dead nuts reliable at this level and you felt the mods every time you drove the car.

The second take away is how all the remaining mods really only mattered from 4500 on. Thus I very seldom notice them on the street, only on the track. Not counting the cool sound of the cam.

Mods 3-5 (plus skinny front tires) took off another second and added 10 mph - to 10.8@128.

This graph shows what I've been saying for while; headers, tune and gears give you by far the best bang for the buck from idle to redline, the remaining mods only matter from 4500 on. Most street driving is below 3000 rpm...you do feel gears and headers even at that level.



Hope someone finds this useful as they decide upon mods.
Here's a ride along on one of my runs. Note the launch RPM...I floor the car as the tree is coming down and by the time I start letting out the clutch it's at WOT

We surely appreciate you Joe. Thank you for the kind and informative edict, along with the graphs.
It sure makes "this thing of ours" regarding a Gear swap more understandable.

If this is correct that you charge $550 extra for a 2006 and newer auto trans car or Z51 car please tell me why?

Will performing a gear swap from 3.42 to 3.73 void my current factory warranty on my 427 convertible?
