Default gear swapping the caddy.

Hey all.
got my 71 Caddy fleetwood that ive been toying with.
I'm not trying to make it into a street outlaw car but would like a dab more performance out of her.
think going from the 2.93 gearing And adding a 3.55-3.73 gear and a posi would wake it up?
Want good driveability but just a little mote acceleration.
any thoughts? Tnx guys.

Im not real smart, but I can lift heavy things.

That's a 6000 pound Cadillac, designed to cruise around town riding like a yacht on a smooth lake, leave it alone and work on your pickup so you can go fast..
The funniest thing about my signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it!!...

God bless our troops, especially the snipers

Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it.
