3.31 ring and pinion

This doesn't seem to be offered by any of the viper vendors, but if I look on summit, I can find it for the Dana 44 (which is what our cars have?)

The ring gear looks to have the right dimensions (8.5" diameter). The only difference seems to be the number of splines. If I could find a matching yoke, could this work?

I do believe the yoke is the issue. I looked into it years ago.

I've been intrigued by that particular gear since I heard they used it on the Comp Coupe? I think they called it a 3.33? And when the Viper compatible set could no longer be found I believe there was a Vette option that could be used but required some mod, blah, blah, blah. I don't know how accurate any of that info is but it seems to me somebody somewhere could manufacture whatever is needed. So I searched "differential yoke manufacturer" and it turned up some interesting possibilities.

For that matter, I would think somebody somewhere would be capable of building a gear set.

Why not just a 3.55? I read all the hype about putting it in and i really like it. Way better than stock but I don't feel it was as much of a difference as many others have said.

I’m installing a 3.45 right now in a Mopar Perf diff housing (thanks Mike 99RT/10).Getting close to finishing it.

In the process I’ve discovered that I am too old for this manual labor bullshit.

I may if there's no other options, but I prefer the slightly longer 3.31. For autox, it could mean the difference between having to shift to 3rd or not.

Is that going into a GenII Viper?

Is the 3.45 a direct replacement or do some mods need to be made? I have a 3.55. I kinda wanted a 3.33 and 3.45 for swapping between fast tracks and faster tracks, if I ever get back on a track.

I probably didn’t explain that well. I picked up a Mopar Performance diff from Mike that is freshly rebuilt and set up already with 3.45s. I swapped the stock bushings out for a set of poly’s, pulled the old diff and installed the new diff. Finished it up this afternoon.

Mike can probably answer your question better than I can.
