    Giving advice yes. If you'll notice I bitch about money issues non stop. I don't make a lot of money and have a ton of priorities so I have to be very frugal. I drive a Toyota and I act like it. By saying that I mean I don't drive a car that requires a major pile of cash to be fast. It's hard to read a person on the internet. What I said wasn't meant to be rude but actually helpful. I mentioned the ratios because your car doesn't turn over 8000rpm so use the torque it makes on the low end.
    I'm going through the same conversation with my step son currently as he's looking at a V6 for his AE86. The V6 makes a ton of torque in comparison to the 4cylinder but doesn't turn the high rpms. Where I'm running a 4.3 in my daily driver I'm telling him to use a 3.8 or less. I can see him pulling a front tire off the ground quite easy. By the way the V6 is an aluminum block and only weighs 100 lbs more than the 4cylinder while making almost 3 times the torque. Isn't it funny to talk about torque in a Toyota?

    That clearer to ya?

I can find a good LSD for a chevy and a gear for less than 300 where a used lsd for my Paseo is over 600 just for the diff. A new one for the Paseo is over $1400 so I did ok. I almost had a whole transmission with the same lsd for under $500 though. Shop around wisely. Talk to Gene Hughes also. He may have a gear he has removed from another car he could sell you cheap, maybe with a good lsd.


    You drive a chevy, act like it.


    Ya thats pretty f***ing rude. I'm so sorry im still learning about cars and want new parts. How about I do what I want to and you turn the abrasiveness down.

    You don't own my car, act like it.

    wow no need to be hostile boys. its just common advice that we all have to learn believe me if it wasnt for rogers and mike teaching me about ebay and google i probably would of been in alot of trouble. its good advice though and its the best way because i am only able to buy things when i am able to save up and well if it wasnt for those sites i wouldnt have as much done as i do as far as the lights and tail lights and headlights. i learned the hard way with my cold air intake by just giong to the first shop and taking that offer not knowing i could of done it alot cheaper and faster way. as they tell me and i am telling you do what you can dont try and put yourself in debt to get everything done at once just alittle at a time and believe me the finish product will mean that much more to you.
