Depends whats written on the tag on the diff housing, could be a 3.08, or 3.23 or a 3.45

3.08 is a high ratio and the 3.45 is lower so 3.45 is good for a bit more , most/all e series xr models are fitted with 3.45 limited slip diff, you can also fit even lower ratio gears like 4.11 but you lose alot of economy with them

I doubt there would be much difference between the 2, unless you get an lsd one

the difference is .22... almost 1/4 turn of the tail shaft.
3.23 is close to 3 1/4 turns of the tail shaft for one rotation of the rear wheel, compared to 3,45 which is aprox 3 1/2 turns of the tail shaft for one rotation of the rear wheel..

which is slight but still notacable...
