Default 07 C6 Base Lingenfelter Corvette Rear Gears

I have a 2007 Lingenfelter 600hp Corvette with 2.56 gears and want to go to either 3.42's or 3.73's and need to know if I have to change the entire carrier or can I put a ring and pinion set in my carrier ?

I got my answers, Thanks. I'm having some " Opportunities " navigating the site, sorry for being so late with the Thanks.

Not sure about your question, however is your car a manual or automatic?

If manual at your power level I would go 3.42 instead of 3.73s at 600 hp. I have experience with high HP cars ie 4.10 gears and 3.55 etc. 3.42 would be a nice balance and low for more speed per gear than 3.73s even though 3.73s might be faster if you can hook. Just my 2 cents.

It is an Automatic. It hooks pretty good as long as I have the Posie Locked. Is there any way to get the paddle shifter to respond any faster ? If I want a shift at 5500 when I'm pulling hard I slap the paddle at 45 to 4800 so it doesn't over rev. Wish it shifted faster.
