Default Bye bye 2.84, here comes the 3.06 again!

Just got back from the j/y with a 3.06 diff. Now I get to spend the next 3 hours taking the 2.84 out, and putting the new one in.

OOOOOH!!! Watch the tire makers standing at all the stop lights cheering you on.... because you're their newest weekly customer.

Congrats on the find.... you'll definitely be noticing a bit of boost in accelleration.
Just remember to cruise at lower speeds on the freeway if you want the old mpg'*.

Yes, yes, thank you Mr Wren, my SE did come stock with the 3.06. When mine originally **** itself, I was only able to find a 2.84 readily accessible. And I do remember what its like to taste and smell rubber. Hell, I was able to do it with the 2.84.

Anyway, just got it back together. All washed up now, gonna go take it for a spin and annoy the neighbors
