What trans are you running with the 3.55 gear? Thinking about going to that ratio with my T5, kind of afraid of losing first gear if I go much higher.
Right now it's got a C4 in it. This is a second rear end (the one that came on the car is still on it for now) and I think the gears I currently have are in the 3.70+ range, so I'm hoping to gain some lower RPMs at higher speeds.
I figured that an all-black underside would be pretty boring, so why not throw some body color under there to spice things up a bit. I have seen some nice looking center sections done in red epoxy primer, but I didn't have any. I had the paint leftover from painting my lower cowl before I welded the upper back into place.
That rear end just happens to be filled with a Yukon DuraGrip limited slip & 4.11 gears. It will be going behind a T56 with a .50:1 overdrive, so I needed a real tall gear to have a usable 6th gear. 1st gear will still be usable, too.
