Decisions.

CAI or Short Throw Shifter?
Can't decide on which, even though the shifter will have more use since I'm stock.

Yeah I was gonna tune when I install the GT rear end cuz I'm gonna change the rear end gears to a 3.73. That's after the dual exhaust of course. Then imma start working on the forged internals... but I should probably do a split port swap before the internals so I get +40rwhp right off the bat.

I have a 98, so I only have single port heads. The 99-04 have the split port. I'm stock at 150hp, they're stock at 190-195hp. You only have to change the heads, intake, and fuel rail.

Re: Decisions.

Yah definitely get the shifter...the very, very slight gains you get from CAI don't outweigh the improved shifts of the short throw shifter.

I think I'm gonna get a Hurst shifter man. Anything's better than stock one we have, I'm always having that random problem with 3rd.

Km98stanh I'd definitely go with the shifter....the feel is lot better s for the 3.73 rear end you could go to American muscle get a limited slip diff then get the 4.10 gears just a thought for you give you some more acceleration for you..they also offer a speedo recalibration tool as well

I did the math, and I can get a GT rear with gears for the same price as the tlok and gears. I can't wait to have 2 tires spinning instead of 1. I'll definitely need the speedo recalibration for that rear and my 235 tires.

Sounds like its gonna be a pretty badass set up. I'm going to go with a whole drivetrain replace stage 2 clutch, alum flywheel,alum driveshaft, t-lok diff., 4.10 gears and then 235's as well..I wish I could find a GT rear end but parts are pretty hard to find here

eBay my friend! Or, they have a junk yard here, any engine $200 rear ends $100. That's fort cheap compared to $400-$600 on eBay.

Maryland, the place is called Crazy Rays. I'm pretty sure most Lincolns and Ford trucks have the same rears as the GTs
