seeing as ive had one i found the wade 1636 to be a pretty good cam.

as for diff maybe go the same as XR's 3.45 or one up 3.7's.

not to bad then my utes got 390k on it, it will probably explode if i put a cam in it :P

4.11's will bring 1st down to about 60 id say 3.7's would be around 70ish in first as for what revs it would be doing at 100 on the high way i am unsure as ive never owned a car with those ratios.

The gear ratios. :lol:

Personally for a daily car I wouldn't consider 4.11s. Especially if you do a bit of high speed driving (at 110 or whatever the limit is in your state, you would use way too much fuel.

Maybe hunt up an XR diff, 3.45 isn't a bad compromise ratio and it'll be an LSD 8-)
