Vx S pack m5
gday, Sorry if this has been asked before but I have a vx s2 s pack with a 5 speed manual gearbox. I'm wanting to change the diff gears to better peformance. What ratio would suit me? I would wish to retain some fuel econemy while being able to get harder accelaration. Also my diff right now is not LSD. Where the best place in melbounre to get an LSD from? Estimated prices for diff gears and LSD would be helpfull.
thankyou

isn't the first gear in it low enough?
Used to have one myself and it took off pretty hard. All i had on mine was extractors , exhaust, cai and larger TB.

hes talking about the ratio in the diff, if you dont do much higway driving then 3.9s is what you want, if u do a bit of highway go the 3.7s.

they will yeild u plenty more poke off the line, slightly less top end. but u cant have everything. best bet is to find a complete lsd diff with 3.9s already, and just change the whole assembly over.
