So price wise plus the extra strength it makes more sense I think. But hey just my .02 obviously the 7.5 upgrade is still a option to consider
I'm gonna price out the 8.8 with 3.73 gears just to be safe, ill keep you up to date with my build, I'm super stoked about it

you'll need to price out the tune as well then to recalibrate your speedo for the gear change.

I'm pretty sure a 97 v6 comes with short tube headers stock, if you want header get Long tube headers.
