<< It was suggested
to me that I might want to replace my 1600 rear end with a 2000 rear
end, as the lower tires turn my 3.90 into more like a 4.11, reducing my
top speed... >>
If you are running with a 1600 then i would keep the stock rearend.
Afterall... how much top speed do you really need? And at the same time, you
are running with about 40 percent less horsepower then a U20. You wont have
the motor to utilize the 3.70 rearend.
I went with a 1600 rearend in my 2 liter. It made a big difference. Off the
line is noticably better but the rolling starts are great! The RPM
difference on the highway is not really noticable. I feel that our Roadsters
are at its best by feeling peppy and agile at low speeds. They just are not
high speed cruisers. Keep the stock rearend.
