A 373 is a good comprimise between drag racing and highway driving.
Depends on what you use the car for as to what ratio you get.

If you were to get LSD, go the 3.7's.

I just got my LSD last friday with 3.7's and all I can say is wow, my car is and AU1 auto.

Also for comparison my brother has the same ratio LSD installed in his AU1 manual and he loves it as well.

sorry to hijack the thread, but out of curiousity.. why do most recommend 3.45 for auto, but 3.7 for manual?

autos sit higher in rpm than manuals (where u choose gear) so the higher the rpm the more fuel consumption.

say if you were on a highway with say 3.7 in an auto you would go through more fuel than a manual sitting in 5th gear with 3.7.

Umm i think thats right

anyone care to agree/dis agree?
