Gear Swap 3.23 to 3.73

Getting ready to do a gear swap from the factory 3.23 on my Formula to 3.73. Been undecided about the correct installation kit. Some are master kits, some are standard kits, some are half kits.

Any idea which is sufficient for the swap? And understand the higher power band and acceleration increase, but does anyone have any pros/cons on swapping for taller gears?

Lower mpg and higher RPM at highway speed. Going from 3.23 to 3.73 isn't really going to be a noticeable increase to make it worth it, IMO, unless your current gears are just shot.

Costing me $500 (parts & installation). I guess that's pretty good. Can't complain. We gotta spend our money on something, I guess.

If you're going to make a gear swap I would go to a 4.10
