I was thinking 3.73, I had a similar gear ratio in my old muscle car. Perfect balance for the throw you back in the seat feeling yet doesnt make you feel like your gonna pop your motor on the fwy at 70mph. Im glad you did the test drives, i was worried about my gear ratio...damn i need to finish mine and stop being a lil bit*h about it... god work ihiryu

So how reliable is this swap as I hear you shouldn't daily drive a twin disk set up because they don't last long. I'm debating in the future on if I should go forward with a manual swap or do a suprastick with paddles. Anyone with knowledge and miles under their belt please chime in.
none of the V8 guys are running twin Disc on there Sc4 with w58. I love the sC400 manual it's more fun to drive .Just get a regular single disc clutch and enjoy.
Thanks for the quick reply. I don't know but for some reason I was under the impression you had to run a twin disc set up for this. LOL! Now I'm reading about 97+ sc4's with manual swaps passing smog in CA ...ugh man CA is a hassle. I came from MN thinking CA is going to be bad *** for modding cars but it turns out I was wrong.
So, how does the SC400 drive with a W58 and stock differential? I'm currently planning on doing a Richmond adapter and M90 eaton on top of my 1UZ, then the W58 manual trans, just wondering if I should stay stock on the differential or not.
