Have to be honest and say I don't think there was any significant wheel spin in either situation. I generally stage with foot hard on the brake and the engined stalled to about 1800RPM. I just think that the 3.73's aren't suited to the engine which is way past it's peak power producing ability at the 5250RPM gear changes.
On the street I can certainly get more wheel spin with the 3.73's due to the increase in torque at the rear wheels.

I believe a manual should have 3.7 and an auto 3.9 check the workshop manual on the first gear ratios, in auto and manual, by my calculations 3.7 perfect for manual, 3.9 perfect for auto. But just from a change in diff ratio has neted a 15.5 from a 15.7, in my experience in 1/4mile racing its a good time to get with just gears.
IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW.
Have you plotted the gear changes with the 3.7s? Is there an extra gear change before crossing the line now?
