Re: gear ratio have no idea?????

if you have an auto, i'd go 4.11 since everyone that has them is very happy.
otherwise if your manual go for something like 3.7 for orsm launches.

Ive rang a few places about 4*11 and they say it kills your top end speed.I also heard it drinks fuel like nothing

Re: gear ratio have no idea?????

Change your transmission before your diff!

3.45s with a 3 speed auto would be bad enough regarding revs as is!

Re: gear ratio have no idea?????

I have 3.7s in my EB, behind a 4 speed, very nice.
going to swap the diff in2 my XF soon, which is running an EB 4.0 and T5, will let you know how that goes.
But yeah Id be tossing that 3spd if I where you.
