    Pardon me if something like this got posted when the cars came out - but have folks noticed that the final drive ratios through 4th line up for a 2003 Mach 1 with 4.30s and a factory 3.7 with 3.31s?? Transmission ratios in first column, total ratio in bold type.

    2011 with 3.31s
    1) 4.24 14.02
    2) 2.54 8.40
    3) 1.67 5.51
    4) 1.24 4.10
    5) 1.00 3.31
    6) 0.70 2.32

    2003 with 4.30s
    1) 3.38 14.53
    2) 2.00 8.60
    3) 1.32 5.68
    4) 1.00 4.30
    5) Who cares

    Shift points are comparable, too - for the two DOHCs.....Whee! It sure isn't 2003 any more !

    Interesting. Definitely an advantage to having that extra ratio...
