Hi Guys

Finally got around to changing my box. First thing my merchanic said about the old box was that the main baring needs replacing which is all good ill do that and sell that box.

Now the clutch is quite a difference in feel id say at least 40% firmer. In saying that locks the gear in alot stronger no slip nothing.

Now ino the ratios are diff from ea -el and &^% me feel ridiculously stronger through power. Dont no weither thats because of the ratio or more so that my box was quite tyred end of its life.... :S ino one thing though 3.45's and a ea box are very fun on the street first is practically pointless second is great for a little sideways action and third is all torque...

Could chaging to a fresher box change power so much or mor so from the different ratio...?
