Re: NV3500 Gear ratios.

Finally found it for you the only ratio difference between the s/10 and fullsize tranny is the fullsize has the .73 or .78 5th .

1 4.02
2 2.32
3 1.40
4 1.00
5 0.83
R 3.74.

Note the drop from 2nd to 3rd is gonna be noticeable lol (better have some torque)

Re: NV3500 Gear ratios.

depends on your overall tire size, but you should be at about 2200 at 60

Re: NV3500 Gear ratios.

I know this is a really old thread but I have a question on this subject. I have a 90 S10 Blazer 4x4 2dr with the original NV3500 and the crappy 4.02 1st gear. It was mentioned that the newer NV3500 has a 3.48 1st. My question is, what model do I need to look for to get the newer trans with the 3.48 1st ? My Blazer is more street oriented so that is the reason.

Thanks!!
