My car was still pulling, but getting loosy goosy on the front end. Turtle has been faster than that by a tad, but with the new gear ratio, can't do it any more.

Are you influencing the children again Wren? We are trying to increase membership here--not kill them off

BTW, what new gear ratio??? Did I miss a post?

The last time he rebuilt the trans, he geared for low-end. Happened about 3 or 4 months back.

2000 rpm at 70 mph???? WHEN mine DOES go all the way into overdrive I am at 2250-2300 rpm in od lock-up. Otherwise I am at 2600 if it doesn't go all the way in.
2000 rpm in od in my car is 60 mph.
What am I missing?
If I put the 4t60-e HD tranny from my dads Park Avenue Ultra parts car what would I being seeing for changes?
As far as the gearing what are the ratios for all the gears and axle ratio in that tranny as compared to the stock 4t60-e that came in my SLE w/3.06 axle ratio?

Thanks in advance,
Stylez
