SEE, thats what I thought! It SOUNDS like an L36, not an L27. Like I said, that is just NOT right for an L27 and WAY off for an L36.

You definetly have 2.84 gear ratio, is there any bad feelings to the engine, roughness, funny idle, etc?

Off the line seems doggish for sure. I'm guessing you can't squeel your tires at all?

Sounds like you are about due for a kitty cat...

The shifts look right for a 3.06 Gear ratio...

Look on the spare tire cover and see if you have code FW2 or F17... That will tell all
