    Hi, the ideal one is 3.93 for fuel economy, acceleration and top speed. With my current 3.46 final drive, my 1st gear max speed at 6.5k rpm is close to 90 km/h, this actually cost me a bit of fuel but engine is super low speed for cruising on highway at 120k.

    BMW's e46 dont have 3.93 but there's a 3.91 for the 4 potters.

    Have you seen this > https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bmw-E46-E9...970931?hash=item3d7c278973:g:InsAAOSwhjNbWuB0

    That ebay unit looks affordable compared the rest. It would appear that e46 6 potters all have diffs will smaller ratios. Those higher ones are for the 4 pots - possibly due to the lack of grunt

    Hahaha the 4.44 diff was on my 318ci before conversion. I think previously at 4th gear, my cruising speed at 105km/h at 3k RPM. This makes the gutless M43B19 single cam can spin tyres on certain road. And very easy to zoom through traffic. With 1jz + 4.44 diff, its going to be crazy.

    I changed my mark x final drive from 4.1 to 4.6, so better pick up.

    Unfortunately A340E is 4 speeder, i think yours at least 5 speeds and has longer gear ratio in each gear.

    I was thinking of swapping either A650E from Altezza Auto to my current E46, or stick with A340E and find a LSD with at least 3.96 ratio. Does anyone know is Powerzone still in business ? Heard they can custom LSD.
