Re: What do you think of my list of future mods?
Yeah, that's one of the reasons I'm keeping the engine mods pretty mild. I might end up sticking with the stock diff, depends how much difference the engine mods make - if the engine makes LOTS more power after modifying it, then I'll probably stick with the stock diff.
From what I've read, the main difference between the sierra 5 speed box and the 4 speed box I've got now is the fact that the 5th gear is an overdrive, so it shouldn't make much difference to the diff if I put in the 5 speed or stick with the 4 speed. The main reason I'm interested in the 5 speed is so that the engine isn't turning as fast when I'm on the freeway, so I'll get better fuel economy - this is my daily driver after all...
