Not sure what the stock gearing is for that speed but I do know that I can go up to 95 in 3rd in mine.

I presume that is in 7th gear to keep the rpms around 2700-3000? I know my rpms are around 2400-2500 at the same speed in 7th gear.

Nice review Yaphet! Glad you're enjoying the new mod. I've also been going back and forth with this mod for a long time. Almost pulled the trigger on the 4.10 BMW Motorsport gears offered by Turner a couple months ago but was worried about 1) the whine and 2) the reduction in top end speed. I think the extra shift needed for the 1/4 and 60-130 runs made me reconsidered the upgrade. That said, not sure if I'll ever take this car to the drage, or will be getting a V-Box to work on my 60-130 times or how many times I will ever do a max speed run so maybe those things shouldn't matter. I can definitely use the low end torque.

Hmm..........

For those that remember LI-M5, he went through 4 Dinan Diffs, which is why I was a bit hesitant a few years ago to do this. However, he always swore this was the best mod on his beast and if you look at some of the old video's of he and some others doing some runs, he was always ahead.

Sorry I haven't done any dynos as I'm never done them and really don't have a desire or need to. As long as I can feel the difference (which I most certainly can!), I am really enjoying the new grin on my face now when I'm driving the beast.

How does the improvement in torque for the diff show up on a dyno since it's not like the diff increases overall torque. It just brings more of it sooner in the rev range right?

I would think, if you overlayed the 2 Dyno graphs, you would see the torque sooner in the RPM range. Max Torque probably wouldn't change, but you would just reach max Torque sooner - maybe not - just my guess.

+1 was thinking about selling mine but can't make up my mind! After reading this thread and how many people want one I think their must be something to it!

Most of my IRL car friends will always make the argument that the added time shifting isn't worth the benefit and some days I agree!

As for the break in, you are NOT limited to 5500RPM! Rev all you want (though I wouldn't do full throttle or hard shifts). Think of it this way, how does your diff tell whether you are doing 60mph at 2000RPM in 7th or 7000RPM in 2nd? It can't - since your transmission outputs the same rotational speed to your diff either way.
Revo - Consider yourself in for a ride at our next GMR meet sometime in May. I will definitely have it broken in well before then.

Let me know if you want to do some WOT with my broken in 3.91. I have to make a run out to Temecula this week to see my CPA.

~Woody
Woody - Let me know when you are planning to be up this way in Temecula. Maybe we can do a meet up at lunch or something as there are some other beasts here too. I'm retired, so I'm pretty flexible.

Thanks Tony and thanks for the DINAN Intakes as well. Loving them! I did give some thought about going with 4.10 from a couple of other vendors but decided to stay consistent with my DINAN mods. Really loving this diff so far and about to take her out on the freeway in a few. Gotta take it kinda easy as I'll have our 10 week old boy in his car seat in the back. Trying to get as many miles as I can to break the diff in while mommy is at work ;-).
