Default 3.23's to 3.73's, is it worth it?

Considering 470 RWHP/470 RWTQ N/A through an A4 with a 3200 stall.

Also, what will the RPM difference be at lets say 75mph on the highway?

Thanks

If you truly have 470 RWHP through an unlocked converter, you need to consider your trap speeds and whether you are out of gear at the top of 3rd with 3.73s.

You might gain a tenth if you can hook it up.

75 mph is about 2600 rpm.

I'm getting an ARE 436 in about a week so it should be about 470, as far as the gears go, I guess it's not worth it for a tenth.

Thanks
