    it just so happens i have a NP203 chillin' in storage.... SO offroaddesign's 'doubler' marries the range from a 203 to a complete 205.... is it conceivable that the same thing could be done with a 203 and a 208???

    oh that would be good for me.........

    I asked Steve (ORD) about this and he told me that the 208 would be the weak link, too much torque for the aluminum to handle, im sure others could give more input

    Yep, it would be a great way to make 208's explode. The 2:1 reduction of having the 203 in low range would double the torque seen at the input of the 208. It was designed to live behind engines putting out less than 400 lb/ft or so of torque. So hitting it with 800 lb/ft or so would get ugly pretty quickly. [​IMG]
