Yup, 3.73:1 is the ratio. What size tires do you have now? I'll need that to figure out what you'll need to keep the same performance you have now.

To keep the gearing so that it's equal to what you have now, you'll want something around 4.20:1, but, 4.56 will be better, more power to turn the tires, and all that good stuff. If your concerned about gas mileage, that 400 should handle 35's with your 3.73's
