Does anyone know what gear ratio I have?
Posted 02 May 2008 - 01:09 PM
i just picked up a 1990 loyale, 2wd wagen with a 3 speed auto trans. What the heck is the gear ratio in this thing? I'm doing 65 mph on the highway and the tach is sitting at a steady 3950 RPM!!!!!!
And I thought my twin cam Cosworth Vega with 4.11's revved high.
any help here would be appreciated.

its cuz its an auto. They suck do a 5 speed swap if your at all mechanically inclined. Best advice your gonna get.
meh, mediocre advice. depends where in the country he's at. on the west coast.....just go buy one with a 5-speed. in the midwest, yea, do the swap.
also, it isn't the axle ratio that is the problem with the 3ATs, it's the gears themselves. 3rd gear is sooooo low.
