Question Trans or gears ?

I'm debating between doing mods to my trans (stall converter,bluetops/valve body,MoparTCM) or installing a Getrag Limited Slip Differential track pack.


I guess my question is which one would be the best bang for the buck and/or which would give me the most performance and if i was to go with the Getrag what gear ratio would be the best ?

Thanks

My quick thought would be make sure the tranny is ready to handle the extra stress of the rear end. If your not racing it though, i dont think it makes a difference.

since i hate choosing i did both lololol, i guess if you had a gun to your head id go with the getrag .the tranny will hold up but the limited slip rear and taller gears will make a real noticable difference .id do tme mopar tcm any way if you can find one. there are as many opinions on ratios as there are chargers personally the tallest i would go with is 3.55 . still a streetable gear you wont lose to much mpg and speed on the top . while at the same time be in the perfect gear at the 1/4 mile .

Im looking for off the line power I know the stock setups are good for daily drivers but at the track not so much the open diff hurts especially if your making power

Rear end is my choice!!!!! 3.73 or 3.92 if u do a getrag. Also the Nag1 trans is good up to somwhere between 500-525rwhp depending on how u drive and if u track it often

Thanks for the input guys I think I'm getting close to a decision lol I will eventually upgrade both but I think the rear end is the weak link for the time being
