can't decide...

Now that CF5 is coming to Texas and I can make the trip, I have decided to pull in my mod schedule...what to do next?

1LE pumpkin swap
cam/heads (maybe just the cam, but if in there already, what the hell...)
CCW SP16A's and new rubber

what would you do?

swap the SS differential to the 1LE (3.45 to 3.91)

You can swap the gears or swap the whole pumpkin...nets out close to the same when you add in labor and sell the existing differential assembly
