Re: 02 v6 mustang gears/faster

I would go with gears. That's one of the best performance mods for a V6. I think if you plan on adding an S/C than you should go with the 3.73s in my opinion.

The higher the ratio, the faster off the line.

Re: 02 v6 mustang gears/faster

It's mostly of the gas mileage, obviously the higher the gears the worse the gas mileage gets, so thats why they say typically go with 4.10's for autos, and 3.73's for manuals, but hey I didn't listen either I have 4.10's in my manual.

It is like this 4.10 tallest to automatic and 3.73 tallest for manuals. Just how it works best.
