once 5 boltEnkei GP5 17x8 wheels with +45 offset fit 245/40-17 tires perfectly in the SpecV. They even look very similar to the stock '02-'03 SpecV 5 spoke wheels! They even clear Brembo calipers; however, they do require upgrading to 5 lug hubs though. I got mine new for $124 each on a year end special sell, so they are a good buy in my opinion.
What do you think of the gear ratios?Yes, the 6 speed with LSD and 4.1 FD was installed mid February. It's not as slick shifting as the 5 speed that came out, 2nd and 3rd are a little too crunchy for my liking. But the LSD is great and the extra gear is nice for 50mph+ driving.
Definitely better than the 5 speed. I'm not 100% convinced the 4.1 final is better than the 3.8 with the 6 speeds and VQ like I was before removing the 3.8 5 speed for the 4.1 6 speed. I'd have to try it to know for sure. Maybe if my 6 speed shifted nicer I wouldn't mind shifting it as often as it does with the shorter gearing?What do you think of the gear ratios?
