The 2010 tires are so tall that most folks could run 4.10's with a power adder and the overall gear ratio is still very rpm friendly.

It is all relative because the transmissions are geared differently. Look at the rpm in each gear at a given speed between a 3.42 rear M6 2002 camaro with 25.5" tires and the same for a 3.45 rear 2010 M6 camaro with 28.5" tires and you will see they are nearly identical. So, in other words, a 3.73 in a 2010 will be a nearly identical change that a 3.73 would be in a 4th gen. The A6 is a bit of a different story, as you can't really compare it directly to a A4 4th gen. Besides, the A6 in the 2010 is geared pretty aggressively already, even with a 3.27 rear.

If this is the 6 spd manual gearing

TR6060 six-speed manual (SS)
Gear ratios (:1):
First: 3.01
Second: 2.07
Third: 1.43
Fourth: 1.00
Fifth: 0.84
Sixth: 0.57
Reverse: 3.28
Final drive ratio: 3.45

Then the gearing is not much deeper than a 4th gen, so I'm not sure I'd do 3.73's vs. stock 3.45's.

I think a 3.90 would be perfect with the M6

that is way too much $$$ for gears.....
so you all think 4.10s would be a good gear for the 28.5" tire?

I agree, I'm just saying that the tire size difference is compensated for with the different trans gears.

You have to pay the corvette tax now on the Camaro. I mean do you guys read the average post on one of the new Camaro websites? They think $600 for a CAI is a good deal and will net them over 30rwhp. They are pretty much domestic ricers.

that's a little over the top there ss1129...but I do agree with the "new camaro tax" and that there are WAY too many noobs on camaro5 dropping 7-8K on mods right out the gate.
