i had found a borg warner 9 bolt rear end for my 91 camaro
i know they are not the strongest but way better than the 7.5 inch 10 bolt
my biggest attraction is the 4 wheel disc setup (which rear comes with all parts)
my question would be (for those of you who have the quick calculators)currently my rear gear is a 3:73 with a overdrive t5 tranny 26 inch tire....street car
would i be better off with a 3:27 gear i have a 406 515 f/lb @4800 and i dont see more than 6500 rpm
how would my time and speed be with this gear change

wondering if i should put 3:70 gears in a new rear
any help or info would be great

Drag racing or street? The 3.73 is a good all around gear.
