Are all FRPP gears the same?

If someone advertises that thel have FRPP gears are they OEM or can they be manufactored by someone else? I ask this because many have told me to get FRPP gears only, as the others tend to whine?

Re: Are all FRPP gears the same?

technically, OEM gears would all be the stock ratio as well as manufacturer. I would assume FRPP have pretty decent standards of production that help prevent whine, which is why they're more frequently recommended.

Ford motor co. are the only people that make frpp products. It's an OEM part because of the fact that it's made by ford. They it frpp b/c it's a racing part and not something that comes on all cars.

ford outsourced their gears to motive in the last bit, not sure hot to tell but some ford gears are made by motive now. Some say if it has an M on the ring gear its motive~ but I dont know if thats true or not.

You should tell that to Strange Engineering and their heavy duty rear end packages...

Better advice would be to stay away from ****ty installers.

Re: Are all FRPP gears the same?

ok thats good
heres some more info i got from another forum:
these seem to be two types of frrp gears one that end in part # A (frpp made by ?/) and prt# M made by motive

but now that u said they stopped making them you dont really have to worry about it!
