Thanks , Che, your truck has been my inspiration over the last couple of days, despite the fact you have a hemi and i dont, lol! But, i want to tap into the potential of this motor fully, as i know i am not getting 310HP to the rear wheels. i've heard from many a source that i am losing about 30% of that rating just to the powertrain, so i want to gain some of it back. just a general question about the gears, if i were to buy 4.56 gears from a vendor, say, summit racing, they would send me both the front and rear gears?

and for the line lock, that just installs somewhere between the master and the front brakes or is there somewhere specific it has to be routed to?
