LSD diffs are fun but they let go too easy. I found that mine let go after about 9 months behind the new clevo. I'd say save your money for something that will give you better performance for a longer period

y do pplz generaly choose 3.45 as apposed to higher. I know fuel efficiency drops as it goes higher but does this mean that 3.45 is the best performance/fuel-consumption ratio? And I was told buy a guy that with 3.08 to 3.45, you would barely notice any difference.

And it's easy to correct you're speedo with a 3.45 as speedo gears are available for them from Ford.

so is there a noticeable difference from 3.08 to 3.45. The guy from the dif shop said "you don't wan't 3.45, what you want are 3.9's" but I personally think 3.9's are a bit of overkill for street driving.

if you're going to put in 3.9's ... why don't you just throw in 4.11's , if you have a 5 speed try get one that has 5th gear atleast 2000/2500 rpm at 100/110, and not 3500/4000 lol :)

but if you have auto and want 4.11's, it's overkill for your engine ... apparently none makes different ratio gear box's for auto's....

my mini spool arrived today... and damn it's heavier than I thought... and bigger... now all i'm yet to do is pass a RW to get my car under my name(still under bro's :P) and i'll slap in the spool & billet axels $600 built... should be worth it though

i've been in spooled cars, but never actually seen what they weigh... was suprised!

just get a lsd diff and slap it in... or if you don't want lsd, your can get a detroit locker - about $1400 , it unlocks when you take the gas off going around a corner, and is stronger
