Thumbs up 2003 mustang v6

alright so i here i go haha
i have a mustang v6 2003(auto) no mach 460 or 1000 system

im at a crossroads on what to do.. i have about 600 dollars to play with
so either im going to get new gears 3.73 or 4.10( have no idea which one to get) and t lock with that of course. i live in florida so i could careless about winter driving haha but are gears really worth it? i have true dual magnaflow exhause and k&n intake. how much gain in my 0-60 time can i see from the gears?
orrrr

i can update my speakers and head unit. I dont want to run subs or amps just makes the car heavier? so what have u guys done that sounds good?

thanx for your help

Re: 2003 mustang v6

I would say 4:10s and a good head unit with some good speakers. And a noticalbe improvement on your 0-60.

Re: 2003 mustang v6

with 4:10s you should be able to run with 4 bangers if not out run, depends on the 4 banger. dpeends on who does it ive heard prices from $550 to $800 for the gears and t-loc. I put an Alpine headunit and polk speakers in my car i think it sound pretty damn good.

Re: 2003 mustang v6

You'll never see top speed with either gear. Aerodynamics and other forces are going to kick in long before it hit top-end speed.4:10 in a auto is about the same as 3:73 in a 5-speed

Re: 2003 mustang v6

Yes for the speedo. That should be all you will need it for.

with 4.10s, a tune, catback, and differential, i spanked some pre 99 gt's. they were autos, but im sure i could beat a few 5-speed ones. those are pretty slow stock compared to the 99+. with those mods, im about even with the 99-04 auto on the street to a certain extent. i raced two of them but to no more than 60mph. after that they probably wouldve gotten me. ive recently added l/t's, o/r h, pulley, custom dyno tune, k&n fipk, and control arms. the car feels tons faster, but i still dont think i could beat a 99-04 auto by much, if any. the 5-speed is out of the question with a decent driver. hopefully the addition of a higher stall converter will allow me to beat stock 99-04 autos on a regular basis. its just too far of a reach with bolt-ons. the stock 94-98's are fairly easy, but the additional 70hp and 100tq of the 99+ is just to big a margin to make up.

600 wont cut gears/tloc/install... the gears/tloc alone is about 400 and if you get a 200 dollar isntall you will probably be looking for new gears/tloc soon down the road. Seem the average for a good install is around 300-600 (depending on where you go). So you are close but 600 is pushing it.

Re: 2003 mustang v6

yea id figured install would be around that much.. around here probably 400
but what kind of rear end does a 2003 v6? and i went on americanmuscle.com and they have a a couple of different brand of gears does it matter which brand or what? and does anyone no where u can get cobra spoilers from? the ones that are on the like 03's and 04's. almost like a lip spoiler... the only ones ive seen are for like 600 dollars and its deff not worth that much
