Chevy nova with high gears , how can I make it to where I can drive daily?
I was told “rear end is high end gear has 373
I want to be able to drive it on the highway if I need
Go with a 3.55 gearset and youll get the best of both worlds unless you want to spend the cash to get a GEAR VENDORS under/overdrive tailstock for the transmission, you won't be sorry if you do
Change out the gears to a lower numerical number like 3.08 if you want but 3.73 is really not that low.
Installing a 4 speed auto like a 700r4 can also help at lot.
This is the car
Plenty of people run 3.73's for street and strip, just needs the right tranny and OD for highway. If you run a 350 with a big cam and OD with 3.73 rear it can really lug an engine though. Check with any of the numerous A, X, or F body forums out there on a good tranny-rear diff. gearing combo.
