    2.14 gears came in 3 speed cars, I had one in an 84 Calais.
    If you put one in a car with a 4 speed you will actuall get worse fuel economy due to the amount of power needed to turn the driveline in overdrive.

    By the way, I am still searching for the right deal on a rear end and a trans...I think a swap to 3.73 and 200R4 trans is in order!

    The 200-4R is a good one!..... Unless you ae making massive power, I would also consider a 3.08 or 3.42 rear end...those should do the trick for you as well....

    It's a good combo, my 307 in my 85 442 feels like it has power
