WOW goodbye gas mileage. Thanks for the heads up. That will come into the equation when I go to get this mod if anyone ever creates one for us.:rep:
NO!so instead of being at 2200 @ 65 I would be cruising at 65 wirh 3000-3200 RPM?
Here we go with the math again.NO!
Going from a 2.82 to a 3.08 will not increase your RPM's by 800-1000.
As an example - ASSUME direct drive no drivetrain slip no overdrive
With the R/T gear @ 65MPH you'd turn 2799 rpm.
Change that out to a SRT rear and @ 65 you'd turn 3057 RPM.
So the gear change will add 258 rpm or so.
Now you can manipulate your car to thinkit had a gear change by changing the overall tire diameter. Want a car that is quick to accelerate, then put on a shorter tire. Want to run fast and long, then put on a taller tire.
Everything is relative to everything else.
Yes BUT that is to compensate for the lack of HP the motor puts out. It is a very common thing to do in the auto industry.Really. So your saying that the SXT and SE gears are bigger than that of the Daytona/R/T and the SRT, therefore they would be producing a high power/HP ration to the ground then the Daytona/R/t/SRT's? Basically saying that SE and SXT has better gearing than we do?
Yes and no. It really depends on driving style.I have been told that with a higher stall torque converter that a oil cooler is necessary, any truth to this?
Would you post the link you reference to in this post. thank youShortly after getting this car I called Chrysler's Support Line, gave them my VIN, and they sent me the Build-Sheet with everyhting that went into it. I just looked it up to re-check, and I was incorrect. The Build Sheet lists it as "2.82 Drive Axle" (Build Code-DMBS)
