you shouldnt have a problem breaking them loose with the 2.41s. i can roast tires with my 2.29s in a full weight 1979 Malibu with a 305.

You can change the gears, but you'll need a "3" series pig.

Since you ask the question, I think you'd better have someone else do it. You don't want a "howling success" story.

The 3.73 gears will let you spin tires...while you watch your gas gauge go down.

I'd keep the 2.41 and go after more torque from the engine.

My 462 (4.21 stroke) loves its 2.56 posi!

Not to sound like a smart ***** but why do want to lay rubber anyhow? Wouldn't you rather go like hell!

Maybe it's a red-light to red-light deal.
