hey guys im thinking of buying another diff for my ea, my cars a 3 speed auto, i got told the diff ratios are shit on these (as are the transmissions) so i want to upgrade to make it a bit quicker, i dont care about top end speed all the much, i just want to be able to get off the line quicker and have a repectable 0-100 time. any one got any ideas??
what model e-series came with a shorter ratio diff??? I would like lsd too?? if any one has any suggustions and knows what model it came out on feel free to add your opinion.
also how much does a second hand diff cost from a wrecker???
thanks guys and girls.
White 1988 EA Fairmont Ghia ~ Gassed ~ EF camshaft ~ Lowered on super low king springs (not low enough) ~ 2.5inch cat back exhaust system with one muffler ~ Clear indicators ~ Simota POD filter ~ New head built for gas ~ 3.23 open wheeler diff ~ EF XR 16inch rims ~ pioneer deck and rear speakers ~ sony front speakers ~ kyb shocks
I have had my car with a 3 speed and 3.23 diff. It was a huge improvement over the 2.77 diff. At 100km/h it sat on 2700rpm. I would not suggest anything much higher then that.
If you are not concerned with driving the car on the freeway, and don't care about rpm.. a set of 3.9's or 4.11's with a few breathing mods like exhaust, intake (cam would be good) will have you a nice quick car!

Ive got 3.08's (4speed Series 2 EA) and sit at arround 1700rpm at 100kmh, and still find it slow off the line, and as the 3 speed has the same 1/2/3 ratios as the 4speed i wouldnt go for 3.08's if your making a change. 3.23/3.45 would be the way to go.
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
