Default 3.23 to 3.42 ??

I have a 2000 ws6 which obviously came with 3.23, I was wondering ,I am putting a cam in next week with a stall and I was wondering if going up to the 3.42 would be worth it? Car is a DD

That is only a 6% difference. I would go to at least 3.73, maybe even 3.90.

I'm w/ the guy and the girl. 3.73/3.90 will definitely the route you want to take but as far as your DD it will affect your MPG greatly at the highway, you'll lose noticably on mpg.

I went from 27-29 mpg w/ 2.73s to 25ish mpg w/ 3.42s.

Man, I think you and I are pretty much on the same mod track..

I just picked up my heads.. You'll really like the stall.. I loved mine.. I am thinking about going from 2.73's to 3.42's, just gotta find a rear end or someone who can do it for a decent price..

I don't mind doing most of the work, but setting gear lash, etc doesn't sound like my cup of tea..

You going to do your own cam or have someone put it in for you?
