Hey guys doing an ls1 conversion from a 2.8 Gu just wondering what gearbox would be best? And in terms of ratios? 4.2 , 4.5 or 4.8 box?
And does anyone know where I can find lists of ratios for all the box's??
And if Any one is after a 2.8 gearbox the one I'm ripping out is a not long ago reco.

you will have 4.6 ratio's in the diff, so it depends on what tires you are going to run, if you have 31's with 4.6's and a 4.2 box it will revving its tits off and you will be doing 60pkh.

with 35's on the std 2.8 gearbox with 4.6's it sits on about 2000rpm, im confused with what your saying about the 4.2 box, is the final drive ratio a lot lower in the 4.2 box than the 2.8 box? i assumed 5th gear would be similar if not the same on the 2.8 , 3.0 , 4.2 , 4.5 , 4.8 .
im wondering what would have the best ratios in terms of matching the torque
