roush rear end = oem gt rear end, they dont even upgrade the ratio do they? I know some do but not sure if roush does?

the install is pretty darn easy the driveshaft bolts are probably the worse... tell me you have a tq wrench though... cuz you do need one. The DS bolts take 65ftlbs when they go back on, they just feel so tight due to the heating/cooling and rust and etc.

It took us alot longer than it should have on brents rear end due to the wonderful issue that came up from using an 8.8 rear from a car that ran 5's in the 8th mile it literally warped the axle lca mounts.

I'll have to go to his house to get his torque wrench.... good to know the 65 pound thing... I think he just tightened them until they couldn't take any more.... which is about how much it took to get them off... but I will make sure he gets to at least 65.... and yeah, we've got a huge torque wrench.
