4.11 or 3.7 diff ratio???

Your help please. I have to make a choice for my EB2 with an ELXR6 with a big cam. Keen to hear from anyone who is currently running or has run either ratio with an auto box.

Yep E.B on nos has. Said no trouble with auto,but had to buy an electrical piece that puts his speedo readings right. Lower ratio realy livens his car up..

I ve got a 3:89 (out of a skyline) in my car.
When u change ratios, u need 2 get
a electronic ratio box fitted in
the dash so as 2 give u a correct
speed reading.
I,m happy with my ratio, would
have got 4:11 but 2xcy (complete diff).
Hope this helps.

Check out this Mustang site. They have some good advice on diff ratios.

EB on NOS - Did the gear change make much difference to your fuel economy & cruising RPM?

Regards

Thanks guys, and Anbo that site was a good help too...cheers!
EB ON NOS - how much did they sting you for the electronic ratio box?? and what revs are you getting in 4th at 100Kms???Really want the 4.11 LSD but am a bit worried it could be a pain motorway cruising as exhaust note gets louder now at 3000rpm with cam and exhaust mods.

@ 110 kph it revs at 2,900.
Fuel eco on the free way is
about 350 - 370 (68 litres).
