I dont know why you would want to....The 7.5 it good up to around 400HP... you can get a girdle for it... I dont think it would really be worth it... since the 8.8 weights alot more then the 7.5, unless your going for like 600HP or something....kscoyote can give alot more info on this then myself (learned alot from him)

Yeah, run a search.

It's not worth it unless you're putting out some pretty hefty numbers.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

I think you can get 3.55's for the 7.5 rear...or you could just get the 3.73's plus the 8.8 weights alot more... so you would be hurting yourself to do it, without alot of power like 600 HP....

Nah, only 3.45s but it's only a tenth of a turn's difference. Don't know what all the fuss is about. . ..
