Still unsure about the F40 six speed, I donít want custom axles. If I can make the Saab axles work in the Saturn then I will make the switch. I have a 80,000 mile F35 with a 4.05 final to go behind the LSJ if I stay with the 5 speed. The car has an L61 2.2L and a 4.45 final F35 now.
Hey! I am glad you got out of that safely.

I can understand avoiding custom axles. I hope the Saab ones work out!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
