Hi was just alittle curious to know how quick a stock manual eb v8 would be if the diff was fitted with 3.91 ratio.

Im seriously considering buying another eb as mine would cost to much to fix, also patches of rust has started to appear.

Thanks Brad

dunno, I fitted a set of 3.7's, and when I had to throw a 3.23 diff back in to it due to breaking a pinion tooth, it felt super flat, so I would say that the gears will probably be good for maybe 2 tenths at those times

yeah just wondering if those gears would be good for the manual, also going to put the raptor in the manual should be real fun.
