The high pinion is a big plus on the 30 but is there any reason you went with the vacuum disconnect? Do you plan on hooking it up or are you going to just use a one piece shaft on that side?

spin the driveshaft flange to spin the carrier out of the way. then look on the pinion gear that attaches to the driveshaft flange. on the gear itself on the inside it may say the gear ratio. my 2nd gen 8.8 said 373 while my 1st gen 8.8 only said ford and a part number and not 355.
so it may say it, if not id assume you could read the part number and find out


looking forward for the end result

the 4.0 ohv is a very strong torquey engine.
ohv = OverHead Valve. cam lifts lifters, lifters lift pushrods, pushrods hit rockers, rockers open valves.

in terms of hp and torque: 5l v8 > 4l sohc > 4l ohv.
with an all out natural aspiration engine, big cam, lots of work done to it, its hard to hit 200hp.
a stock sohc is 203hp i think. v8 is more.
i built mine mildly and ill prob get around 160hp.

i think the strongest solution to the axle disconnect is to put a non disconnect axle shaft on that side and a block off plate
