Hows your top end performance? From 60-110? And what is your RPS on highway at 80mph?

Gear are bang for the buck one of the best mods. Your gonna notice a huge difference from idle to redline in every gear. Do you have a 6 or 8 speed? What's the height tires are on your truck that makes a difference on Rpm?

I have the 6 speed tranny, thats why im thinking about the 4:10. My 3:55 with the 6 speed is good on the top but bad on the low end. My tires are a lower performance tire but i dont know the height off hand. How is your top end performance with the 4:10? RPS at highway speed - 80mph?

I'll have to pay attention to what the exact rpm for ya... I'm sure someone knows. I've got as good as 21.7 mpg on highway with the MDS turned off.
