    Re: Alternate rear gear ratios

    Sorry guys, but the point of my post is not to discuss or advocate the merits of any particular rear end gear ratio. That is a very personal decision in my opinion.
    Nor was I arguing that a gear ratio change would enhance the inherent weakness of a thin aluminium carrier case. It remains as weak as ever.
    My point was that there are other possibilities than the 3.73, which may be of interest to some of you.

    If any of you have driven a C5 6speed with 3.42s, there is a noticeable difference with the longer gearing paired with the LS motor. This is clearly a subjective statement so naturally some will be happy with the 3.73s, which is fine.

    I personally would like to see some taller gear options for the V, as I believe it would create a more pleasant driving experience as the V is my daily driver.

    Though I will admit, if the V had 3.27s or 3.42s I would probably be asking about 3.73s and wanting the increase in performance from a shorter gear ratio.
