coz my car lags a** off the line, but i dont want 3.7s or anything because my missus drives it every day.
cheers.

PS: once the gears are changed ill have a crack at getting a high 14,let yous all know

Yeah, its a fair difference, very noticable.
I would lean towards going 3.7s or shorter if you want to get quick times out the car but.
Shorter the diff the better with the BTR.

i was happy with the difference.
the car also pushes a lot better around corners with the LSD.

ok good.i was thinking of 3.7s but we want fuel economy and the speedo to still work, plus we are getting the gears for a good price.
plus we will get a 2700 stall soon so it should be all good
