you'd be making a serious mistake going 3.73s man. You wouldnt even notice the difference. Ive made that mistake before when i first got a rear. I swapped the 3.73s out in short order for 4.30s and was a very happy customer.

4.11s at the MINIMUM. 4.11s are like 2k rpms cruising at 80 in 6th, pretty damn streetable imo. I personally would go for 4.30s, i had them for along while and they were awesome to drive. Only time they become a prob is when your making lots of power and need more gear in order to finish the quarter in 4th.

Especially for a car that doesnt make much power, they'd be perfect man. Especially for the 1/8

your trans will be fine for a LONG while as long as your hydraulics are functioning properly. Mine saw 500+ rwhp for a long while with no complaints. What finally killed it was a dragging clutch

yeah that makes sense, i loved the 4.10's just like you said 80 at about 2k rpms, i could see going 4.30's as i ussually race at irwindale, pretty regularly, thanks for the tip,

yeah i pretty much now that the t56 is sturdy, it was just that gut feeling for a second while im out in the middle of nowhere that there is potential for anything given my luck, but after the trans obviously shifter perfect i knew it was the rear

no problem man. I honestly think 4.30s would be the best choice for your car. Especially since you have slicks, your 60's would drop NICELY. Whatever you do, don't go lower then 4.11s even for street duty

yeah lol i have done that in damn near every gear at least once, when i first got the car, going from my other manual camaro with its 4 speed to a t56, is different, took some getting used to but it think i got it down, and yeah trans if all good hear, knock on wood.

the car jumps up nicely when thrown into second eh? lol kinda scary, like you dont want to let the clutch back out becasue your scared of what might have happened

so you say you broke your rear and swapped back in the stocker...?

Curious.... what rear did you break?

02-11-2008, 08:23 PM
alright so basically what happened is i was pulling this "fast" honda and boom, lol i still kept my foot in it but it sounded like a jack hammer was under my car like really bad, btw im in the middle of farmland, so i just call my buddy and tell him we gotta go right now, so we left and i drove on it for about 20 miles home, keeping in mind its about 1:30am in the morning, and im driving at about 10 mph, so i call my best friend and ask him a huge favor, go to my house, grab my truck and my rear end and drive it up here tonight so i can put it in tommorrw morning, well he got to slo at about 4:30ish, slept till 6 woke up and tried to drive it to the shop, almost made it antother 20 miles, and the last 2 or so were on the freeway, so i just said yeah i need to tow it just so it dont break on the big bridge, and i had to tow it, first time one of my camaro's have been on a tow truck since like 2004, i had a good run while it lasted lol.


so yeah the pinion had about 5 teeth sheared off and the ring gear about 2 or3,it was awesome lol

The 4.11s I just put in my 9" feel awesome! Not really as big a difference as I thought it would be though... If I had to do it again I'd spring for the 4.30s as well!

damn, and i was going to roll out with you and tim that night too, but my damn exhaust disconnected and that shit would have been way too loud for the streets, especially since theirs alot of cops in this town.
