Thanks for the pointer, some useful information on there.
I've been doing some reading up on the benefits of the 3.3:1 ratio for the rear axle versus the usual approach of 3.07:1, which did you choose when doing your conversion? am I right in thinking you went to Heathrow transmissions to get the work done?
Do not know the exact ratio but i used the same ratio as the GT V8 and have no regrets. It does 120km-hr and the rev then is 2500 so very comfortable. Also the gears do not feel too short but that also depends on the amount of HP you get from the engine. I fitted a mild road cam with a wide torque band and kept the SUs.
It more then 20 years ago now. We made an appintment with Heathrow transmissions, and around the appointment scheduled a holiday and made a very nice tour in the South of England. Delivered the car in the morning and went to London for some sightseeing and picked up the car in the afternoon. I can recommend Heathrow as i did not have any problems with the axle in the past 10 years: They are still in business as a friend of mine recently got a axle done
