Went in to Xtreme Motorsports today and had the rear swapped out from 2.73 to 3.42

After lunch with AnM & Chad, I was reminded to include a pointing pic, this was the best I could do.

Now that is what I am talking about :thumbs:thumbs

I will usally mention the 3:42s upgrade for any auto with 2.73s, best SOTP feeling for the money being spent.

Later... :devil

Congrats! I had 3:15's in my C5 and often thought of swapping them out. I can't imagine what 2:73's would be like.

What no video! How do we know that is not from Tom's lolly 82 CrossFire? So I have this staight Tom's are on the left and yours are on the right... I will confirm it is not from my lolly 84 CrossFire because it has been up on jack stands since Oct. Plus the tire marks look a tad short.

The difference is amazing, when you were so used to the 2.73's then switching to the 3.42's !!!

Then you discover how fun it is lighting up the tires ! :lol

Go ahead and ride Chad's...oh, nevermind, we talked about it enough at lunch...

What'd that swap cost Dawg? I have 3.15's on mine and have thought about it as well.

Sean, the cost of labor was about $600... plus the cost of the rear end!!!

It can be done on jackstands, but not advisable, after unbolting everything, the front outweighs the rear, and things get a little scary crawling under there when the vette starts to teeter on the stands... :eek

Tom, I'm not worried, I still have top end speed!!!!

Jim, the right side was practice, the left I let it all hang out, then I lifted so I wouldn't shred the tires on the very rough (unused) pavement....

And you can tell it wasn't Tom, there's no oil drips.... :lol

LOL...oil drips. Good one. :thumbs That wasn't oil drips...but sure did "stank" after that burnout in a CF. :smilelol I better check my shorts now, I've never seen a CF do that before... :lol:smilelol:lol

Speaking of top end, I have tons of it now, just no car to match it safely after 130mph. :devil The front end gets a little light for my tastes past that speed. Did you know you can setup EBL to display a 200mph + speedo on the laptop, pretty cool stuff. :thumbs Wish it was like those newer fandangled contraption C5/C6 cars that get lower the faster they go. :cool But for now I'll just settle for a lowly CFI mochine that hauls Ass! The :devil made me say that...LOL Good move on the gears Dwayne. :thumbs

:eek $600 labor...and I just looked at price of diff online at one place $1649! That's a chunk! Guess the girls have to pay :lol for one semester of tuition themselves.

Guess I'll definitely be waiting on this one. I want my headers back first. Damn these things are money hogs. :toetap

Yup. :yesnod

If you want to play, you have to pay.

Clutch, built tranny, built diff, exhaust (headers, X-pipe, CATS, catback), CAM, = $10K+

I think what Tom meant to say was "A fool and his money are soon parted".
