    im coming across an sm465 for pretty cheep. but im debating on whether or not this will be over kill. id buy it and hold it till i could afford to get a doubler. my question is would i be better off using a th400/doubler/3:1 in the 205 or should i go with the 465/doubler? would running 3:1 in this combo be over kill for a daily driver? the worst thing is working at an auto parts store and being broke. everyons giving you ideas and i can do is dream /forums/images/icons/frown.gif . maybe next summer.

    It wouldn't hurt your daily driver unless you put into low range on the street. Maybe you could get your boss to let you order your parts through the parts store and maybe get a discount.
