what other mods are done to your car
the 8.8 you wont need until your pushing some serious power like around 290-300,.

For an 8.8 of your year you could find one used for probably $300-$350 maybe cheaper. And I bet you could install it yourself its not 2 tough.

30+rwhp rwtq look into the 8.8 with moser 31 splines. otherwise, the 7.5" will hold up fine. if you run slicks or have a stick and drop from 4-5k rpms, you may want the 8.8 for added security though.

you ran bolt ons on slicks with th 7.5 ... what was your lowest time and did the 7.5 give out?? wasn't it like mid to low 14s with your 7.5 doing just fine?
