: How can you tell on a '95 which ratio you're running?

: Greg

: : the 95 is 3.15 and the later models have the 3.23.
: : =======
: : : : : the stock 3.23 M3 cannot reach 60mph in 2nd (it hits like 58 or something)

: : : : : however, if you have the Jim C chip AND a 3.46, you can hit 60 in 2nd...

: : : : : so, in effect, if you get the higher differential, your acceleration improves (but you will have to launch at a lower RPM), but you need the chip to increase your rev limit so the red-line shift MPH's stay the same
