: I probably missed something but I don't remember anyone posting info stating " off the line, tire screeching, pushrod type, Annie get your gun, Katie bar the door, wheel filling with smoke, off the line WAHOOOOO that others describe...". As you stated there is a difference. On Monday I went to the dealer and drove an (almost) identical 540 to mine but without the 3.15. All I can say is the car is more sluggish with the old diff. And there is a faster progression thru the gears. So it made the car crisper and more responsive.

: Thats is my .02 worth. Still a worthwhile mod.
