I went with 2.62. They are more suited for my driving. On the top end they pull in the gears longer before shifting. Someone made a graph with all the ratios and the 2.62 have advantage on top end due to it staying and pulling the lower gears longer, making the final drive a better ratio on the top end pulls.
If you are a track guy and using slicks, get the 3.09.
if you want top end pulls and going for land speed records get the 2.62.
for street driving people say they love the 3.09 becuase it feels people punchier but my 2.62 cat feels torquey enough!
Can’t go wrong either way.
3.09 for 1/4 mile and possibly street if you like it real torquey
2.62 for top speed, high speed pulls, and gas mileage lol
Oh also if you plan to modify and make 1000hp stay with 2.62, the high power guys switch to 2.62 after a certain point due to the torque being unusable with the 3.09 down low.
