Sheps Final Drive changes

3487 Views 10 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Murlo26
Has anyone had Shep perform their final drive change on their trans? Are there any cons to it? Pros - being able to ride out 4th longer in the quarter, and staying at lower rmps while cruising on the highway.

theoretically, slightly slower acceleration due to the different gearing, but if your car is modded to the point where final drive enters your mind, that effect is probably negligible. I'd wonder about whether this affects the speedometer reading at all, since some speedometers work off a sensor in the transmission and others might use wheel speed sensors.
Google knows about the final drive upgrade
