Yeah, that should be doable when you get the cam/exhaust/gearbox in.
Should make a big difference.

Decide for yourself when you put the manual in. Wouldn't suprise me if the 3.08 pulls a better time down the 1/4 as you won't have to shift into 4th.

While I've never ran my 3.45 equipped XR6 down the quarter, I'd be very surprised if I had to slam it into fourth...

To be honest mate, I can't remember. I know I've seen 140 in third. I dunno if it would be pullin' over 140 km/ph at 400 metres...
