Default 3.45 diff for auto?

Will a 1998 auto suffer from this diff?

I think the driver will suffer.

Stock is 4.44 I believe, so your top speed will be higher, but it will take for ever to get there.

What are you trying to accomplish?

Funny I liked that the driver will suffer.
Planning on picking up a 1998 auto and I have an extra 3.45 LSD diff laying around that I can play with.

Sounds like a good excuse for a manual swap...
