Just so you're informed, most 3.46 open diffs are going to need to have their in/out flanges swapped with your 3.07 diff before it will be able to bolt up on the car. I'd make sure to have an experience diff shop do this for you since they have to be torqued just right. The 3.38 is generally a better choice for most 330s.

Yeah, thats what my reasearch has told me. Is it very difficult to swap the in/out flanges, my car is at a good friends shop now hes doing the work for me. I was leaning more towards the 3.46 seeing that i have a 6spd and wouldn't be TOO bad...

3.38 will hit 60 in 2nd FYI
3.46 hits 58mph if i'm not mistaken

flanges dont need to be bolted, they pop off and pop into place. I have done this several times.

i think he's talking about the "Input flange", which most certainly does need to be precisely bolted back into spec or damage will result.
