Re: gearing (what are u running)
Really, way is that?
Do you think the stock setup with 3.73 is over geared?
With 38's it would take 4.56 to take it back to stock and that's not accounting for the weight dif. 40s would take even more.
What do you find to be the negatives?
Is it so it gives the these turbos more time to run up thru each gear?
I hear conflicting advise on this by seeming equally experienced persons. I am sure some say it becasue they do not want to lay down the $$ for 2 axles gear changes but that is only some.
I was honestly thinking 4.56 would be correct for the 40's SS-M16 I am planning but had considered 4.30s as I can find either at salvage yard for our axles fairly easily.
Having ran and towed for years with 37's and 3.73's, in every combo you can think of... I miss them.
Yes, it was a bit laggy above 4k, but I never had any EGT
issues, no towing issues, better fuel economy, quieter cab and just less wear and tear...
I went with 4.30's because I thought it would make this tire burning differance... nope... Got a smoking deal on them used...now I get worse milage, loud as hell at any speed above 65 and its just more wear and tear...
Again, this is just my opinion after about 950k running these trucks with stock, modded, and otherwise turbos, injectors, tire sizes...
