Just from experience, I have always run into this, most rearends out of chevys with a 6 in them are geared a little lower. I believe it helps the 6ers with tourqe and gets em moving faster. 6ers are ment to have more tourqe than horsepower.

I could be wrong but I beleive that most of the chevys with 6cyl had 308 in the rearend..
