Hello to all old and new!
I havent dropped by for a long while, especially since my old Trep that my son was driving fianlly gave up the ghost.
Anyways, shame on me for not knowing this already, but does the Intrepid trans change it final drive ratio by swapping ring and pinion, or is there a gearset at the back of the housing where the shaft goes back up to the diff?
My Grand Prix trans uses a chain drive on one side to swap ratios, so I was curious if the LH trans was similar (not transverse of course)
I've looked at a couple of Trep R/Ts and 300M Specials lately, but I've read that the 3.89 final drive hurts the fuel mileage. I know trading off acceleration is not done very often, but the 28mpg I've beengetting on my 3800 GP has spoiled me a bit. That car isnt gonna last forever and I still love the Treps and 300Ms better than the newer Chargers/300.
Anyone done this mod?...or better yet what kind of fuel mileage are you getting if you have an R/T or 300M Special?
