The 4 speed auto and 5 speed manual both have Overdrive as the last gear rpms will be close to the same.
With 2.73's and an auto 2000 rpms was 80mph. With 3.27's 2000 rpms is 70mph.

This isn't an exact answer, but a 5 speed should be about 200rpms less than this. 4.10 Gear Speed/RPM Video

What would be the change from a gt to a sixer? It's a gt in the video correct?

Not much that I know of. Yes it's a GT in the video, they share the same transmission if I remember correctly

I search gears a few months ago when I decided to add it to my list. Most people who had 373 said they were great but it left them wanting more. 410 will give you a more completive edge if you are next to a gt. The only thing is if you are getting a supercharger, the gears are a big no no.

I have no plans to supercharge, and most of my driving is in city so I'm leaning towards 4.10s

That would be cool! You have a Stick right? Unfortunately I have very little experience driving a stick but that would be cool to see how it goes through the gears!

Yep I have a manual. The choice is yours if you want to drive it. Either way I don't mind giving you a ride in it

I forgot to ask what transmission you have. 4.10s for an automatic and 3.73s for a standard

I have a 2004 v6 and I just wanted to swap the rear end for a GT for the T-lok and the different gears since v6's came stock with like 2.73 (trying to remember). My problem is I can't find one anywhere nearby. I was wondering if there's any difference between 2000-2004 GT rear ends because if not it would widen my search some. Also what all years of GT rear end bolt on and look the same as an 04 v6

Well that helps some. What's a good price for one? I saw some on eBay asking for 400 bucks for a stock GT with like 90k miles on it.

01 Bullitt actually came with 28 spline axles unfortunately.

Stock I believe they have the same gears by the way. I payed 275 for an 04 Gts rear with 40k miles. It all depends what gears are in it

One more thing, does it matter if it's the rear end off an automatic or a standard?

They shift at different times not sure if this is due to the gears. A friend of mine locally has a gt and needs an auto rear end. So they told him at the recycle center.He was not intuitive enough to ask why.

The Auto 8.8 will have a different gear ratio, other than that they're the same

They didn't come with the 2.78s? Or am I confusing those with the older SN95s

Depends on the area. Go onto SVT Performance and people seriously think they are worth their weight in pure gold.

Most built SRAs go for 1500+ everything is a straight trade assuming both have equal mods so that should tell you something

Just gotta jack up the rear end with the car in neutral. Rotate the tire one full turn and count the driveshaft rotations while you do it
