Hey guys, now i've got some 4.11:1 diff gears sitting around now obtained them cheap so thought what the hell may aswell buy them, Im going to install them soon MAYBE?

My question is, I don't drive my VP V8 Sweet bugger all now so im not too worried about economy other than that is there any other problems with installing 4.11 diff gears? All i've heard is it just the economy that people complain about.

pretty much means ull just be revving higher at highway speeds, so more fuel used.

speedo will need adjustment

Chirps anyway at gear change with the shift kit I have added. 1-2nd is always fun unless its wet, but as I say the VP only really comes out now for a blat never actually driven to get me from A to B if you know what I mean.

I've heard of these pulse changing thingymabobs from Jaycar, and finally we have one in town LOL so ill prob pick one of those up, although I have heard that the pulse for the speedo sensor can be changed by holden computer (tech2 maybe or equivalent) maybe just the later model ones tho.
