I think that 3.73 is as high as I would want to go on something that gets drove everyday...that will get you lots of low end power and good mid range power.

Gears

Theres not much diff going to a 3.73 waste of money. did it once
on my 96-SS. Went to 4.10 on my 2000 X. I drive 100 mi a day
gas mi is about 19 per gal. Makes a big diff in performance.
