Walkinshaw, my preference is for the 3.23 but I'm greedy and want both
LSD and disks. Is is possible to create this type of rear end with what I
already have using shims,etc?(and built by a diff shop)
I've never tackled a diff before and dont want to end up at the shop with
3 empty housings and and boxes of bits.
Deankdx, I'm getting similar info about the AOD from research on the net.
I'm becoming aware of this tranny's failings but have been made informed that
later (1996+) variants, yes, the electronically controlled ones are far superior
in strength and have better ratios in 1st and 2nd gears.
I've been reading heaps at www.baumannengineering.com
, these guys
predominantly work with ford stuff. REALLY worth a look!
Have also found brand new trannies in your town, Corio Auto Spares
for $2150 inc GST for the 6 and 8 cylinder. These guys have great NOS stuff
I'd be keen to hear more of your experience as I too will be running straight gas.
