16 mpg is highway mileage on trips to arizona and nevada. 14 mpg average city driving. At 80 mph I am running 1800 rpm with 373's

3.42 x 0.816/0.625 = 4.47 ---> deeper than 4.10 or 3.73.

For AS69RC, 5th is 0.77, 6th is 0.63
4.10 x 0.63/0.77 = 3.4 ----> effectively same as 3.42

That is how I decided that 3.73's are really not worth having.

3.42's with Aisin is an awesome combo. Above 27k just skip to 4.10's with Aisin.
