Me to! I found a place online that will do a speedo adjustment. Will be long project. Today I'm cleaning and painting...ztollon said:Interested to see how this turns out, also interested in seeing how the computer and speed sensors react to the change.
Shakey no race car. Just lowing gears a little. Makes it jump off the line a little harder. Also the 3.73 has a limited slip for better traction.
Perhaps the point of this forum is lost on you. It's the Performance Mods forum. Installing lower gears has been done for performance for about as long as people have been modding cars. Admittedly, 3.42 to 3.73 is a pretty small change, but as far as I know that's the only other ratio available, so he's gotta go with what he can get.
How does installing a factory part make it a race car?Are you trying to create a race car out of a [C]adillac by installing parts from the junk yard?
No, it's not lost on me. But the OP (and me) own a 4K lb. sled that ain't never gonna go but so fast. So actually more than being lost on me, it's funny to me.Perhaps the point of this forum is lost on you

its not a small gain? Have you ever changed rear ends out before? It makes a world of difference.Shakeydeal said:No, it's not lost on me.

I know it will never be a rocket ship. The bigger issue here is that if you have a perfectly good rear end, why would you buy something from a junk yard that is questionable? I know this is the "performance" forum, so if he could shave a couple of seconds off his 0-60 time by installing the junk part, it might make sense. But for the small gain that it makes, seems silly. But hey, that's just me. Shakey
