The advantage of higher gear is to get you into the optimum power band quicker and keep you there.. The downfall is higher RPM and poor gas mileage.. But you also loose some of the benefits if the car or truck is not tuned for the higher gears.. (Tweak shift points , timing advance , fuel curves).. .. There are companies or local tuners that can help you with your needs .. ( I'm not talking a generic tune ) you tell them what you want and a good tuner can write you a new set of parameters that can get you were you want to be.... If you decide to change gears.. Make sure you go to a shop that knows what there doing .. Setting ring and pinion mesh( correctly ) is time consuming and better left to specialty shops that do it often might be easier to pick up a complete axle setup from spindle to spindle from a junk yard or craigslist and swap all your stuff over .. What ever you decide good luck

Dave, Listen to Speedy. If you change to a 410, you're probably going to need to change the shift points and the speedometer calibration. It can easily be done with a lot of tuners. I know I can do it with a Hypertech. But as Speedy said, Efi tuning is the best.
