That's a good ratio for the street. My 3.73 makes me want a 6th gear, good thing it's not my daily. I have a ton of OBDII parts, let me know if you need anything.

*my LSD came today, oh man what a wretched smell when I opened the box. I've been putting a new starter on the m44 for the time being so I can still get around without having to crank it over 6 times

I got it in (I wish I heard that more often), and since I chose to take off the manifold to do it, I'm putting that back in, but it started raining, and I don't want water getting anywhere near its not supposed to be, so I hope its dry for a few hours tomorrow.

Ah, how was it taking the manifold off? Hopefully it's dry a bit tomorrow for you, glad to hear it is coming together.

taking off the manifold was easier than I thought, its just keeping track of where each sensors, bolt, and nut goes when it comes to putting it back on. I get out of class at 2 so hopefully I'll have some time.

to wolf: the seller said he emptied it of gear oil before he shipped it, but I guess you can't get every drop out, man that thing reeks something wicked.

lol, you should have smelled it when one of the people in my auto tech class opened the front diff on a Subaru thinking it was the oil pan and dumped all the gear oil on the ground

I'm almost done putting everything back in (on the M44) but it began to rain again, I'll see what I can do tomorrow morning.
