Want to put rear gears in v6

Wanna put 410 gears in my v6. What company can I trust that makes great less troublesome 410 gears? I don't want motive plus. I have an automatic. And not only that I want a trac lock too.

Get a 8.8 rear end and then change the gears.

Well you wanna turbo and have a lot of horsepower. Just easier and cheaper. I put a tlock in mine on the 7.5. I like it but i wished I spend more on tlock and got a locker. But i wanna make power but not as much so mine is fine

If you do go with an 8.8" rear, keep in mind they aren't all the same size.
99-04 are wider than 94-98.
They will bolt on fine, as I have an '01 GT Rear end on my '94.
Unless you want MORE of a fender gap, stick with a 99-04.

+1. You tend to jump around with your plans for the car. I think the best thing you can do is figure out your end goal and stick with it no matter what. Whether you want to go FI, NA, swap, or buy a new car, just pick one idea and stick with it. It's better to save money and resources for one project than changing your mind every time something new comes up. Not trying to be a d***, but its hard to help you if you're still not sure what you want to do. Hope this doesn't come off the wrong way, I just think you should plan out your next steps so that you avoid surprises and disappointments.

Good. More power to you. Good luck with the swap.

I'm just always quick to give up, bc of resources. That's why I change my mind, that and lack of knowledge of what works and what doesn't work... But I know I got it this time. I'm going hear the donor car this weekend an see how it is.

Yeah you just have to pick a route and be patient with it. I think this swap shouldn't be too bad, and I'm sure plenty of people here can help you with it.

Yeah, lack of funding can suck the life out of a project pretty quick. Stick with it though, and at the very least it will sound much better than your 3.8 does.

If you do decide this is what you want, do it fast. It won't last for long.
Examine EVERYTHING. Don't get so excited you overlook stuff.
Little things add up quick.
With my donor car, the ad said it had a Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft, and full exhaust w/tips.
When I got home with it, I looked underneath and noticed THERE WAS NO DRIVESHAFT. Apparently his brother took it off to put on his fox..
Later, discovered the exhaust was "homemade" with bends and welds that had cracks, holes..endless leaks. The mufflers weren't the right type, and tips were bent and dented..
had to spend more money than I had.
All this to say:
Don't play it up so big in your mind that you blind yourself from what's really there.
