Dobey- 4.10 gears will only reach 202 with a motor pushing well over 500hp. My top speed with my setup now is 145mph. Gearing lower only gets you up to speed not top speed.
If your truck is lifted or plan to lift it you will benefit from lower gear ratios, but your top end speed won't be all there2000 single cab short bed 1500 w/ 6.0 vortec maxx swap from a 2006 2500, custom intake, 8mm wires, electric fan, muffler delete, 2/4 drop, asp pulleys, true dual through body exhaust, built trans w/ shift kit, custom tune by efi alchemy...302rwhp...

A Silverado has way too much drag to be a 200 MPH vehicle. Lifting a truck will only make it much worse for that. If you want to get to 200 MPH in a truck, you're going to have to drop it, chop it, and do several thousand dollars worth of body mods, and plenty of weight loss.

I am not looking for top end speed as I have already stated because as you said it is a truck. It is not designed to go those speeds. I would like to increase torque though and 0-60 time (ie. faster off the line).

whats your budget?
elc fans- $150
gears- $800 if 4x4
all prices are with the parts, and tools needed also doing all the work your self. best bang for you buck to spend say 2k would be converter, get a magnaflow muffler, cam, heders and a live tune.2004 gmc sierra ext z71 5.3
