  1. 3.9 would make it slower of the line but lower rpm for cruising

  4. so with a 4.44:1 ratio Diff 5th gear at 3000 rpm will be 69mph

    3.9:1 diff will be 78mph

    4.11:1 will be 75mph.

    if you want the middle ground go 4.11 if you want awesome acceleration like i need for towing then 4.44 if you want a lazy cruiser go for 3.9

    i put this into the gear ratio calculator using a 5 speed non turbo ratio gearset. an 26.7 inch tyres but not sure what they actually are.

  5. Hi, did the Rad pack come with any hoses or pipe fittings ?
  6. No, no hoses or pipes, that's my next dilemma on what to do about pipes etc.

    Have a look at think automotive
  8. Viper performance.
  9. Do RJES advise a secondary coolant pump over and above the engine driven one with their kit? I have one which I haven't fitted as it's seemed to only be to feed the heater matrix which had been higher than the engine on the splitty. However I spoke with chap the other day who was adamant it was needed regardless ?
  10. No not seen the secondary pump setup before.

    I think if you put a heater matrix under the front belly pan into the totem pole it will be ok
