Hey everyone ive got a 88 ea falcon i currently got the gear ratio 3.45.1 that i got off a ED XR6 a while back.My diff is gone cause of me doing stupid things. Im planning to put a gear ratio of 3.7, the reason why im doing this is cause i want better take off speed,i want to start beating commodores.Is there any negative affects by doing this. :cry:

would that potentially better its 0-100 or make it worse?

cause that sounds like just what a BA needs to get off the mark and get some momentum.
