Gears

I'm getting 3.73 gears. Should I get ford racing gears or motive performance plus?

They are both good, I'm running with Ford Racing and they are great, good grab, and I've never heard anything bad about them. Make sure to get the master rebuild kit because it is worth the money and have a reputable shop put them in because if you do them yourself they will burn up pretty quick if you don't have a press and if you have no experience doing gears. Oh, and make sure you break them in right because if you just start slamming them as soon as their done than you'll have to pay for a new set and install

Burning the gears because you don't have a press? Hmm that's new lol
Me and my uncle put in my gears and posi without anything more than normal hand tools and the measuring tool (dial indicator?) for backlash

Drove 2 miles after install then hard launches about 10 times playing around.. No noises anything 10K miles later, guess I'm lucky

I recently purchased the ford racing 3.73 gears from americanmuscle for my 98 and they make a world of a difference! before the gears I had installed a few bolt-ons but nothing made such a noticeable difference as the gears. I have 18x10.5 wheels in the rear and I can spin them into second gear with the new gears! just be careful because the highway becomes somewhat of a hassle and your speedo will be all screwed up

A tuner should fix that right? I planned on getting both around the same time.

I'm not sure, I know in order to fix it you have to buy a new small plastic gear that goes from your speedometer to your transmission... you can order them from Ford or online. the one problem you'll run into is on the highway when your doing about 90 the speedo says your doing 110 and the governor will kick in.

He has a new edge everything is electronic so a new tune is all you need to modify for the gears messing with the speedo.

at some point in time ford racing started letting some other company make their gears, and I thought it was Motive~
