    should be about 3k, with a 3.73. 6,500RPMs in 1st and second are at about 30 and 50 mph, respectively.

          I just love mine. I'm running a 3.46 LSD, and the ratio is perfect for combined street/highway duty.

            Is that tranny of the removable bellhousing genre? Wondering what it would take to get one to sit behind an s14...

                  You need to double check yours I want to say it is a 3.25:1 LSD. Remember I put it in there so do some checking.

                      Will do. I have to get under it to install a 24V skidplate anyway - I'll take a look at the casing when I do it. M4tt was convinced that it's a 3.46:1 *shrug*

                        when we were at lunch I wrote down on your list AND told you it was a 3.25:1. Just check it, if you like it then there is no real reason to change it right?

                          Automatic E36 M3 drive shaft fit confirmed! One small hiccup, you need to change out the CSB to one that will fit the E30. Other than this one problem the only thing (custom) you need to make is the transmission brace. Now I need to figure out if I am going to run a 3.46:1 or 3.73:1 LSD

                              For those that did this swap, can someone please post some pictures of the modified cross member, and what they did? With the new info about not having to get a custom driveshaft made this is now a "must do" for me. I'm already running a 3.73 rear gear so I think this will be perfect for my car. Thanks, Christian.

                                Shameless F/S post

                                http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=120930

                                This is a PIC i found off of the Azevedo Motorsports web page. It is just basically an extension from the manual brace rail to the brace that sits out in mid air. I am going to be making a few of my own brace (adapters) for myself and a friend. All you will need to do is bolt the (adapter) on the car and then bolt the brace to it. My adapter will bridge the manual to auto rail.
