Anyone know what the final drive or differential ratio is on our s3 2016s are?

I've determined that the minimum speed in gears on my Miata GT is 5 x the gear #, corresponding to about 1500 rpm.

For the 3 sGT, it seems to be between 6 and 7.

The Miata's final drive ratio is 4.10. That would put the 3's at about 3.4 of maybe slightly lower.

Mazda knows. All you need to do is look. Took me about 30 seconds to find it. :laughing019:

I think Mazda has a pretty good idea what parts they have put in their cars. All this is right on the Mazda website. :wink2:
