all depends a ALOT of things
*manual/auto?
*extractors/exhaust?
*head work?
*intake?
*Injectors?
*diff gears?
*what you want to use it for ?
*and last but least daily or street/strip?

will it is kind of stock.. got the basic mods extactors 2.5 exhaust and 3 inch intake. its an auto..so it would have the standard diff ratio..which i think is 3.85? and i would like to use it as a daily, as well as hitting the strip on weekends

If it is just a standard EF GLi, the diff ratio would most likely be 3.08 :wink:

If it is going to be a daily with a 977b (i don't know much about the stage 3 crow but i have researched the 977b a bit), i'd definitely look into at least 3.45 diff gears and a 2500 stall for the auto. 3.08 gears + BTR auto with stock stall + mid range cam = bit of a dog off the line.

My 2c..

ive tried all 3 and im for the wade 977b.
imo it produces the same power as the other 2 but has a better idle quality and good drivability..

Location: Brisbane, 4173
QLD, Australia

I brought a wade 1673 to suit my ED with a EA T5 and EB 3.23 rear.

Yet to put it in haha but i paid around $150(i think) for a regrind.

I got a good price because i sent a ED cam( which allows my deposit to be refunded) and an AU cam (cause they can never have too many), the money they gave me for sending them the 2nd cam($40 wreckers price) covered the Post costs for sending both cams and receiving my regrind Back.

Regards.

to my understanding you need a tune for the Stage3 crow cam as with the 977B its recommended.....
