You're installing a 700r4 onto your 2.5L engine? I have read a number of times, which I guess qualifies as rumors, that the GM 700r4 takes so much power to turn that you may be sorely disappointed with your power afterwards. The 700r4 was designed for V8 engines so good luck with your 4-banger. I hope the rumors are false but I do know it was designed to be pushed by some pretty healthy V8 engines.
Here's a little info on the 700r4 with a handy schematic wiring diagram for its lockup torque converter. http://www.smokemup.com/tech/700r4.php

|Jerry Bransford||With your 3-speed 30RH automatic and 2.5L four-banger, you want to run 4.56 gearing for 33" tires. 4.88 is appropriate for the 2.5L and 33" tires only when the transmission is the 5-speed manual.|

You already have 4.10 ratio so 4.56 wouldn't be a whole lot better, I think I would go at least 4.88 if not more.

Not your average gear ratio question...
Alright folks I know that the gear ratio questions are dead horses. I have been reading about this. I spent an hour and a half on google reading every link on the first page reguarding my question. So here it is. On a 4 cyl, automatic '01 with 33" tires, should I go with 4.56 or 4.88 for a gear ratio. I was hoping to go with the option that gives better MPG's but still alright performace wise.(I'm already saving every penny to get the gears done) Which one do you recommend? (I'm looking at you Jerry)
