Get 410s if you want fun and fast, but you do lose some highway cruising, like I only cruise around 70 now, but you could do 80, 373s are only good for cars with power adders, 410s go good with bolt ons

Thanx for the info see at the moment I only have a Borla exhaust system and a cold air intake with a good fuel air tune. My brother helped me out a lot with most of it and he was the one mostly telling me to look into better gear ratios! What would be a better overall complete tune for the 4.6 GT???

410s are the cheapest, best bang for the buck mod besides nitrous, nothing you can do that cost 500 dollars will shave as much off your 1/4 mile like gears

Used slicks maybe better... But you are correct... For once

Why, a mustang with bolt ons and no gears don't need drag radials, just learn to drive :p

Re: Need some help with gear ratios!!!!

I love my 4.10s but when you make huge power slightly longer gears help because you lose precious ET shifting when your car pulls at insane speeds. On an N/A car I'd say 4.10s for most bang for buck. Especially under 80 MPH.
