The power is made is pretty much what they get anyway - i'm sure it feels so much better to drive!

Much better than a VX V6 wagon and G202 3 cylinder Charade LOL.
More power and less torque than we both guessed.

Ls engines love to rev shorter gearing,particularly after get valvesprings done even moreso.

If spending the coin go 3.9 if on budget try to find 3.46 diff off scumtree cheap or wait for golden egg 3.7 gears.

Got an overdrive for the highway!!!!

Would the 3.46:1 diff gears affect highway economy much? I do several interstate trips to Victoria every year and I know this car already gets 8-9L/100km on the highway which I think is still fairly decent for what is done to it.
I plan on taking it to Mallala this year for legal fun too, the car is pretty much ready for that type of punishment lol.

3.46 will barely make any difference to fuel economy,usually improves it a tad easier takeoffs etc unless complete leadfoot.

We went 3.7 on brother's vs maloo 5litre..economy actually improved lol

Ls bit sluggish down low & do like to rev so gears help wake them up.

Lol old m6 vy ss ute would creap into 7ltr/100 on cold nights in 6th gear
