Ahh just like back in the EF XR8 days where they were running 3.23:1 diff, and compared with the EL2 XR8 running a 3.45:1.
I was wondering why the Boss engines ran a 3.23:1, i always said the first upgrade would be to put a shorter ratio.
Not sure if it's an easy retro fit, JR looked into changing his 3.45:1 to a 3.73 and according to a few gearbox places it's not as easy as changing ratio's on previous model falcons. Something to do with the computer and Control Blade suspension which wouldn't effect your car.
