I was always under the impression that the stock ratio (at least for n/a birds) was 3.27. However I cannot speculate as to whether it's trac-lok or not.

I have two V8's, one a '93 and one a '95. Both are factory 3.08's. The '93 is Trac-Lok.
According to the tech article, "Y" is an open (non Trac-Lok) 3.08.

Interesting, good to know. I wonder if it's just the 96/97s that have standard 3.27s?

well that'd explain why it seems to " lay down when i nail it . the 3.08 is great for the truck but i think that's gonna be the first major mod for me , a 4:10 or so and tracloc . she'll blow both rears off though so i was assuming it was a tracloc . haven't done much with it to this point besides drive it ................................ thanx !!!!!!!!!!!!
