Default Difference between a 2.93 and 3.46 rear differential? - 05-15-2017, 07:28 AM

Thinking about swapping out the manual rear diff (2.93) for one from an auto (3.46).

Would this be good or too much?? Looking to put some fun in my sons 2005 530i 6-spd w/~231HP.

Thinking it'd be a direct swap with no mods needed. Same part number, just different gears I think.

Thoughts???

Lower top speed, shorter gearing. You'll end up shifting to second halfway through the intersection. Should actually be pretty fun in a NA-6. I wouldn't want it on a turbo car.
