with a big stall, some 3.9's and exhaust+tune 12's are a walk in the park, so they can go pretty well with the right mods. thats a lot quicker then most lighter 5 liters :whistling

I spoke to my mechanic today and he said he doesn’t think he can get a 3.9 but can get a 3.7. How much should it cost? I have been told about $650 + tax for the gears. And about $1200 to rebuild it and fit it. Is there much difference between the 3.9 and 3.7?

Cheers
