That is what I do not know. The 42LE has a final drive of 3.89. Does the RWD version have the same final drive? The Advertised ratio for the new 2.7 magnum is 3.90, which is close enough to say it is the same.
In the FWD LH the final drive is the transfer gears in the transaxle, but I do not know what it is in the RWD version with the same tranny. Could be the tranfer gear still, or it may be out back in a differential. Depends on how they engineered it. If both drivelines use a differential, the gears should be interchangeable.
Anyway. This was just an idea I though someone may be interested in. I am still paying off student loans, so a Magnum is over my budget.
