This ratio will allow me to realize real gains from planned weight reductions and aero-mods. This ratio is referenced on a 94 swift in Europe. I cannot find any other reference to it but am lucky that I found it.
So azgearhead, how about some more detail on your Metro final drive swap? Where and how did you get the parts? New or used? More detail on the drivability? I'm sure other metro owners besides me would be interested. Thanks.
