Question Gears

Ok, I have decided that I am going to purchase some gears for my 95' v6 auto Mustang. I have been reading around and it looks like I am going to need the 4.10's gears, and I was wondering what else I am going to need to get along with that. I know that I need to also purchase the t-lok, but I am unaware of what else I need to purchase. Once I know what I need to buy, I was wondering if any of you knew of a place where I can get both a cheap and reliable product. Thanks for your help.

well you dont NEED a tlok, but you might as well put it in there while youve got your differential all torn apart. You pretty much need the gears/tlok at bare minimum, however youll want a chip to remove your speed limiter and raise your rev limiter as well. Other than that, id recommend a speedcal from dallas mustang to calibrate your speedo.

How much is all of this going to put me in the hole, assuming I can get someone to install it. And what exactly is a speedcal, LoL.

Yes you can get a chip and a speedcal together. A chip for the 94-98 mustangs won't fix the speedo, you need to either use a speedo driven gear and/or a speedcal.

Ok, so how much is all this going to cost me, LoL? Sounds like this is going to be alittle more complicated than I thought, maybe I should take it to a mechanic, and there isn't anything that needs to be done to the suspension or anything correct?

Get the speedcal. Dont waste your money on the speedogear. Speedcal gets your speedometer almost perfect.

And get the chip to unless you like going 70-80mpg lol

LoL, too bad that was a typo, what's the deal with the speedometer being ****ed up. I was just reading some of the other posts, after I get the chip and gears, it won't limit me to 90 mph will it?

without a chip you cant go faster than around 70-80mpg depending on the gear you get.

The chip corrects this.

The speedcal corects your speedometer so that it reads 50mph when you are going 50 mph. The chip just allows you to go faster than the speedlimiter on your stock computer.

Get what I am say?

Ok, so it will allow me to go faster than the governor currently allows, and correct my speedometer to what it should read?

Speedcal corrects your speedometer to read right

When you upgrade gears the computer limits your top speed

For Example.

When I swapped my 7.5 for a 8.8 with 4.10s I could not go faster than 73mph.

With my chip I can go as fast I can get my engine to go lol

So there is a considerable amount of acceleration gain from the new gears egh...? Cause my car now is stock and its not very fast, LoL. I just ordered some intake the other day and am expecting it sometime this week, that will help alittle but not much, I am really looking forward to getting these gears.

You have 2 choices:

1. build the 7.5 rear you have, you should only do this if you never plan to drag race the car.

cost for this is 450~ for FMS tlok and gears along with a little bit for new bearings and install will run you around 200-250~ just get it done right pay a little extra to get a pro to do it if you can its well worth it cuz they can whine and cause all sorts of issues.

2. buy an 8.8 rear end used or new. new they are 800~ and come in 3.73 with a tlok already installed (highest gear available at least) you can find a used 8.8 with 4.10s already in it but you dont really know about the rear until you drive with it in the car... so buyer be ware on that, trust who you get it from, you can also buy an 8.8 for around 300~ buy new gears rebuild the tlok unit for around 300 bucks~ install 200~

the 8.8 is FAR stronger than the 7.5 and if you ever want a tq arm they dotn make them that i know of to fit the 7.5 yet.
