Otherwise it's pedaling, skating and generally not a real good run.
Car will give me a 11.75 or something when I know theres a 10.80 in it......

Yes, T5. Bought the car and was told it had 3.73s until I drove it. Really can't wait to put gears in it. Probably going to go with 3.55s since it sees mostly highway driving.

Either way, a bigger gear and DRs should drop a full second off of your ET.
Yeah I mean 17 runs and it was around what 5500 DA so it got decent out. I was doing a lil bit of a burnout on the tires to get them clean and slightly warmer then just cold. Seemed to work well. 95.00 was the highest trap I could pull off. I am even wondering if the guy i bought it from is dyslexic and it has 2.73s intead of a 3.27... Not a common gear if I am not mistaken.. I agree I need gear.

I am debating... 3.55 or go 3.73?

I think you will want 3.73's due to the fact that we are at high altitude here and there is never any air, in fact 4.10 or 3.90 would be even better.

I think 4.10s or 3.90s might be too much for a daily driver... I mean it will even back out once I throw in the T56, but still.

I know it has 2.73s. Checked the first time I had the car jacked up in the air which was when the ball joints fell out of it a week later.-_- And I had 4.10s in my last car. Loved them save for when I got on the highway. Drone was pretty bad.

Just drain the oil out of the axle and drop the rear cover and look at the staming on the gear and it will tell you the ratio.
Then replace the cover and put new lube back into it.
That lube probably needs changed anyway............

I'm fond of 3.73s but there's no right or wrong answer there, just preferences.

Or you could just jack the car up, count the rotation of the tire to the driveshaft rotation. should be 1 rotation vs 2.73
