When I go WOT from a stop light, 1st gear is very, very short, so with the SC, it's like I won't have a first gear at all except to scoot around parking lots.

So rather going back down to the 3.07, I thought I'd go down to the 3.23 or 3.15.
If you find one, make sure it matches the bolt pattern of your drive shaft (should be 6-bolt, not 4-bolt). You can swap diff input shafts if you need to, but you'll want to take it to a shop to get the lash set correctly.

Locals... Anyone want a set of ccfl angel eyes. Never installed with ballasts. No harness. I think this set would fit better on non face lift. For those that remember, I got it from norcaleinstein.
