low numerical numbers I.E. 2.73 or High ratio would translate into a high speed performance type ratio with less torque multiplication translating to not as much off the line performance, like when starting out at a traffic light. Conversely, High number 3.73, 4.10 and higher, translate to  off line, hard acceleration performance because of greater torque multiplication usually sacrificing performance at highway speeds because of the higher RPMs  sacrificing economy [not to mention ear drums and fillings](try'n to keep it simple,not easy). 3.73 considered the best compromise of  regular driving "streetability" and spirited performance. of course tire diameters can affect in the same way, but that is another story.

Hey fellas!

Having a 12 bolt diff with 3:73 ratio. Or is this high ratio diff more specified for other needs (?)[sic]

high ratio diff...Mattf ?, that would be a low ratio diff. Low ratio = high numerical

Bill, I am surprised! Don't you know your rare options. That is the rare: I don't know anything about Camaros or WTF I am doing option. LOL, Good catch.
P.S. Not that rare of an option anymore. Becoming more and more common these days.

Without seeing, and I am sure a pic will come soon, I am guessing the holes were for a modification that would have a special discharge nozzle that squirrted fuel into the secondaries as well as the primaries acting much like a double pumper. A drag trick for sure. Many felt that the Vacuum secondaries were inferior, not understanding how to properly set up a vac. secondary carb. There IS NO problem with vac. secondary carbs, just a bunch of Hocus Pocus sold to an ignorant bunch who insisted that carbs could be made better. This mod. was usually accompanied with a gear driven mod. attatched to the throttle rods to mechanically open the secondary barrels simultaneously with the primaries...what a messed up idea,IMO.

102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: More 69 Z/28 Ebay fraud on: January 05, 2015, 09:07:15 PM
Definately do not want to hijack topic, but a COPO is for sale also on eBay that does not have spoilers. Weren't all COPOs (L72) spoiler mandatory trim cars too? I thought? I know the Z in question has the spoilers and trim tag is wrong, so I am not confused on topic and perhaps should have a new post, just was on my mind when reading about D80.

Yea! Congrats! Happy New year! patience is rewarded. Glad for you my friend.
104  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 31, 2014, 08:28:43 AM
Bentley, I think Kurt is referring to the stamping font on the  gang stamp not matching, not that the vin numbers are different.

That (font and any other irregularity in partial VIN stamp comparisons of matched block vs trans) is also what I refer, apologies for any ambiguity. If another unit (I.E. trans. or other major component) was exchanged during the assembly process because of damage on the line, the new unit would have had to have the partial VIN added on the line. That replacement's stamping may not be identical in appearance to the engine block's stamping .

Disclaimer: I am no JohnZ and was not involved in any automotive factory. This is just a supposition and opinion of what may have occured to explain irregularities in appearance of partial matching component VIN stampings. Shoot, I have not been through the Norwood plant since I toured it as a Cub Scout in 1970! I was 9 years old! Y' all have a Happy, safe, productive, New Year...like a fine wine, all our cars will literally become a year older tomorrow.
105  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 30, 2014, 09:26:09 PM
I've seen a few examples in 69 where they didn't match.
I guess I try to understand why there is a mismatch in some stampings when that is noted. John certainly could verify this, but a plausible reason, IMO, is that in a hurried environment and some carelessness factored in, some trans or other units may have gotten damaged before they made it into the chassis and had to be replaced, hence a different stamping. Just throwing that out there while it was on my mind.
