Exclamation TLOK NEXT, BUT...

sooo im gonna get a tlok installed but i dont have enough money for a tlok and gears - ive already spent a lot re-doing my exhaust and what not.

Ford Racing 7.5" 28 Spline Traction - LOK Mustang Limited Slip Differential at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

so i want to get this tlok installed, i just want to know whether you guys think its worth doing just a tlok, or does it have to be a tlok and gears?

thanks!

Youll get the most bang if you wait and get gears too. You will also have to pay installation twice if you do it separately. Just buy the tloc and hold on to it till you got the money for the gears and install.

Re: TLOK NEXT, BUT...

i am hoping to do the same thing, but most everyone mentions the double install fees, so seems like best to do all at one time and get tuner also....

Re: TLOK NEXT, BUT...

No performance gains. Just fry two tires instead of one gain

Re: TLOK NEXT, BUT...

anyone know if these r good gears? or would you recommend something else? ill buy the tlok, then gears, then ill save money to install them - who ever installs the gears has to re-program the speedometer right?

Rpm wise yes. Higher rpm on hwy. I know a lot of v6 owners that use 4.10s and love them. I use the highway alot so 3.73 Is too much for me.

Higher rpm will make the engine work harder for a longer time. So yes in a way. Plus mpg will go down.

You can either change the gear in the tranny for about 20-30 bucks or you can buy a tuner for about 300-400 bucks

Re: TLOK NEXT, BUT...

you either adjust the speedometer by a tune or by a speedcal unit. 99+ V6 cant use speedo gears they are digital.
