So going with 3.73 like I have or 4.10 require a special non-dealership tune which they don't necessarily encourage or support. If you modify a car you have to look at all aspects and make a decision to modify weak points that can fail due to the modifications.
Yes, but it has already been covered in this thread that there have been standard DS failures, amongst stock cars, during normal driving conditions..... so.......... ?????
