I've never raced this car since I so recently acquired it, so I don't know what it runs. This will pertain to 1/8 mi. times.

Assuming this car (bone stock 91 LX hatch with flowmaster catback) will run 9.7 to 9.8 at 74-75 mph with 2.73 gears and AOD, what could I expect if I swap to 3.55 gears? I would assume a before 60' of around 2.2, especially since my traction-lok is toast. I would install a new LSD with the gears.

Any thoughts at all would be appreciated, thanks in advance. :)

My thoughts are, why the hell would you put 3.55's in there.
At least 3.73's man. Dont fear the gear. Go with 4.10's. They work great with aod's. Just save up to rebuilt your tranny and get a stall. :)

Oh, a buddy ran 9.7's in a 97 auto with 3.27 gears. He swaped to 4.10's and runs 9.1's now. Not the same engine or car as you, however you can relate to what the gears will do for you.
