I've had both. Mine came with the 2.65, switched to the 3.06

Thinking about going back to stock 2.65

Not that much of a performance gain. Quite a mpg difference.

They use the same housing. There is a sticker that states the ratio. It is usually on top and not visible without a mirror.

I gained maybe a tenth... unless you are tracking it, not enough to really feel.

If you want track gears, I'd go lower than 3.06

I noticed a slight gain, but not enough to get excited about... I wouldn't call it a deal breaker.

from what i can tell if the car has the road and track package it will have the 3.06 ,and the only visual way to tell would be by the grill the road and track has a black grill with black honey combs and the rt badge in the lower right side of the grill ,correct me if i'am wrong the base rt has a chrome grill with no badge

Depending on the year, 3.06 is an additional option to the R&T, the Super Track Pack. A $400 option.

There is no visuall way to tell a STP Charger. But it must be a R&T to get STP, unless that has changed.
