My Ride: 330ci,Turbo Altima2k
Today i'm going to swap 3.38 differential.

I'm going to do 3.38 swap today but before the swap i wanted to test my 330ci 6 speed with 2.93 differential, "on my private 1/8 mile rode" for acceleration. I just did one rune and it felt like a good rune so i didn't bother doing another one, so my time was x.xx at 78.914 mph
My mods so far are: headers and intake + weight reduction 200lb lighter then regular 330ci LOL.
My weight reduction brakes down 2 ways, first 100lb are spare tire, tools, jack and .... that add up to 100lb and 2nd part is to keep my fuel tank around 5 gall because 12 gallons of fuel is about 100lb.

engrish are you secon ranguage

1 gallon of gas=6.073 lb
12 gallons = 72.876
spare tire + jack + tools does not add up 100 lbs. Unless you use lead wheels.

unless it causes you to do another shift to reach the end it will certainly gain.


if you had done like a 40-60 time i'm sure that would have shown more it's gains

My bet i was thinking of watter you are right.
As i removed those parts i weighted on digital scale.
spare tire + Jack + tools+ wheal cover + ruber mat in the trunk + leather bag with book in glow boks, rear head suport and moonroof sliding winall that always brake in these cars easy 100lb I did't want to type that all.

By the way everything went well, I love how i can drive 40 mph in 6th gear. Will do 1/8 mile rune maybe tomorrow to see if its any better at acceleration on a drag.

40-60 is nothing because if you say 40-70 then 2.93 will win assuming they both chipped.
It only shines on 1/4 or 1/8 off a mile, which is why i ran 1/8 of a mile to see my speed at 1/8 with 2.93 of a mile by the way that is faster then zhp, I was somewhat surprise.
I swapped this differential mainly because most of my driving is 40-60 mph and i hate to shift all the time from 5th to 6th or 6th to 5th.

I had them on my 330xi and it made it drive like ****, I only kept them because factory xi is raised over i, I prefer factory 330ci suspension over anything. I mean h&r good brand and good quality spring, but suspension in 330ci makes me very pleased.
