    thanks man, not really all that worried about engine for the time being apprentice wages dont allow for too much fuel let alone the cost of parts.. just after a fast, reliable daily cruiser.. hopefully the diff gears make it abit quicker

    Tint looks just right m8. What percentage and brand tint is it? Want to get some on my car as well. When u get your
    Diff gears it will totally transform your car, one of the best mods u can do. U will be amazed...Your rims shouldnt scrape even with 245 wide tyres if your getting SSV's. Ive got 245/35/19 and lowered on sl springs and its all clear..

    thanks mate, i just went 20% on the rear and 35% i think it is on the front just keeping it legal, if i wasnt on p plates i would have gone 20% all round like i had on my statesman. what can i expect from the diff gears??
    just what i want to hear thanks man!

    Your diff gears will have you easlily burning rubber plus acceleration is increased especially from
    a standing start. Makes a fair bit of difference from stock. Mines an auto and went from 3.07 gears to
    3.73 and that changed the way the car drove alot for the better...Would have gone for 3.9s but my revs
    would have been to high at highway speed. With your manual you dont have to worry bout that..

    3.9's will be fine because you have a 6 speed.
