    X 2. Although since it's just rebuilt I wouldn't try to wind it out any time soon. Glad it runs better now! :hurrican:

    I wouldn't change my gearing at all. I run 5.38's and 33's in my V6 but I also have an overdrive. I drive it around town and on the freeway just fine although I get passed by everyone.
