i haven't even broken mine in yet and i can already tell the car pulls harder and is faster through the gears. def one of the best band for the bucks mods
Right, but SWAMP's statements are based on engineering facts, not a butt dyno. We have debated this topic to death, and the science behind it is more accurate then anyone's "butt dyno comparison". What you gain in acceleration, you lose when you have to shift early and the stock car keeps going; trust SWAMP when he says many of us have been over this MANY times. The 3.62 may make it feel faster, but I can assure you its not.

That being said, it doesn't negate the pros of easier driving around down and perhaps the ability to move in traffic as it slows down and speeds up without shifting gears as often.
