They can get the motor to spin past 6.5k so i guess the extra power/torque makes up for the higher gear ratios. If u get higher gears, wont u be shifting non-stop and hit ur rev limiter much much faster?
    Remember he drives slowass.

    Ideal gears are 4.30's and a 28" tire for my set-up...at the track. And at sea level.

    I run a 27" Hoosier. Trap at 118 or so at altitude.
    4.56 and 27" tire would be ideal at altitude.


    The 4.11 to 4.30 is a minimal change, but may help the bog outta the hole. Won't be shifting anymore than I do now.


    And yeah....Slowass.

    i was lookin on the moser website but couldnt find a drop in package like the strange one it seems that you have to build it up i know what i want but just thought it would be easier from a pakage already put together. have an m6 so i know i wanted 4.10 gears. mr. luos did u order yours directly from the manufacture, were u able to order a drive shaft from there or had custom, or used stock. please info would really appreciate the help. the reason i ask is that i want to bullit proof my rearend, im doin the suspension also before i mod the engine. im goin that route i want to see what it can do stock engine, with suspension upgrades and good strong rear.

    I have a slightly longer driveshaft than stock, but my stocker fits just fine with the 9"
    I ordered mine from Exotic Performance Plus.


    It is bolt in, but you need to use your stock backing plates, so it comes in pieces. You will need to get the axle bearings pressed onto the axles...with the backing plates in place against the hub.

    Otherwise, it all pieces together with the use of basic tools.

    I did not.
    Got it off a friend that had it built at a local driveline shop.

    My stock aluminum driveshaft fits great though. Just need the 1350 yoke

    I'm doing the same. I hit the brakes too. I'm getting antsy for power, but the gear change is making me happy for a little while. I really like the idea that I won't need to worry much about not being able to drive home after going to the track. Especially seeing it's at least a 1.5 hour drive for me each way.

    i wouldn't just toss in a rear from any company... i'd get my buddy to make sure it has the proper back lash before i drive around for the break in...

    3 or 4 channel will be dependent on your car. Easy way to check is look for wiring, it will either go to the center section (3 channel) or towards each wheel (4 channel).

    About to get a 9" myself, just need to wait for hurricane stuff to clear up, and to get some more free time for the install. EPP so far has been one of the best prices for anyone that I have been able to find for a drop in Moser 9"

    2 channel here.
    On a 4 channel car.

    I never used the ABS (fair weather car) and I never EVER had the TCS on.
