    Yes, on the order of .3 to .5 tenths of a second in the 0-60 time. Passing times (50-70) wouldn't be as significantly affected, though.

    It was in my very own little turd.

    I am well aware that the 99 and prior needs the correct trans calibration to shift correctly. The 00+ is much easiers to swap that part of the program so now I have to work that out of my 99 program. It bounces of the revlimiter about 10 times before it will shift

I have my trans apart and the differential at hand, I'm just not sure how I could get the computer to co-op with me. Any ideas? or electronics wizards?
    From what I have experienced you will need to change the PCM program on 93 to 99 cars. the 00 to 03 may not require it. I am not sure.

    Re: 4T80E 3.11 to 3.71 swap

    Yep, been running around with the gears for well over a year now, threw in a stall while we were doing it. Love it!!! Should have been the first thing I did was get rid of those 3.11's. I personally think the 3.71's work real nice with the "base" cams. Why they didn't come from the factory that way, I'll never understand, they do stick the higher gear with the base N* finally but only in Pontiacs, go figure. God the Corsa's cackle on the highway from the extra rpms, I love that too!

    So it requires you to drop the Transmisson to do it?

    Re: 4T80E 3.11 to 3.71 swap

    I Gonna be doing this swap, to wake up my SLS, MY question are the indicated tools Necessary, I don't see them refered to in the Procedure?

    Also I have a 2001 STS Computer, since this swap is being done with a 2001 SLS, Is it better to swap the computers to have the Shift points match up but throw the fuel/timing tabels off or is it better to leave the SLS PCM and have the shift points off?

    Re: 4T80E 3.11 to 3.71 swap

    Highline and AJ,

    I was thinking about doing a swap from the base 2.73 gears in my 1SE V8 STS to the 1SG 3.42 gears. Do you think either of you would have any information this install, IE whats required, etc?

    The title of this thread is "4T80E 3.11 to 3.71 swap".

    You are fooling with an entirely different critter. Based on your Profile post count you can PM either member and/or maybe start a new thread here or up in RWD STS.
