joeb Posted January 14, 2006 Report Share Posted January 14, 2006 My 96 STS has a 3.73 final drive ratio. I also have a 97 grand prix GTP but that has a 2.91 ratio. I believe the GT's or maybe the SE models have a 3.23 ratio or thereabouts which helps the acceleration since they has less torque. lets say both of my cars make the same torque but the GP weighs about 400lbs less. does that mean the GP can live with the lower numerical ratio since it has less mass to accelerate? ya, I am not accounting for the trans gear ratio's (1-2-3) but I asssume they are similar.
