Only problem I can see is you may be doing a lot of shifting between 11 and 14.

When I ran there with 4.10 gears, I would have to shift to 3rd just before turn 12, then down to 2nd coing out of 12 and into 3rd again just before 13. I ended up letting off a little early going into 13 just to avoid one more shift.

On the other hand, the 4.30's may allow you to stay in 3rd through that section, in which case, you should be okay. It all depends on how much speed you can keep in the corners and how much low end torque you have. Keep in mind that I had Hoosiers at the time.

When I went to 3.73's, I could keep it in 2nd from 11 until after 13. It made me faster in that section, but I paid the price on the other parts of the track with less corner exit umph.

Clear as mud?
