Gear ratio

Hey i was wondering how easy is it to replace the gear ratio from stock 2006 gt to 4.10. Or would the 4.56 be better ?

Do you have a 5 speed or automatic? Most guys do either 4.10 or 3.73 depending on their situation and what they want. 4.56 seems a little steep. Is it your dd, just a weekend warrior, or a track car? Most people have a shop install the gears, I was quoted $550, but you may have to pay a little less or more.

PonyontheBeach is correct, everything depends on what you have and what your looking to do. For Street driving stick with either 4.10s or 3.73s. My understanding is 3.73s are better for a Stick and 4.10s better for Auto or Stick.

I agree with 4.10 i had them on my 2005 v6. Nice torque. You going to like it. Have it done professionally. Do to take it to any shop. I tried to save money on mine and tok it to a little gas station shop and they didnt set the backlash correctly and the wining noise was just horrible. When done correctly 4.10 r enough. Any higher would cut off from ur end speed too much

I misspelled there I meant do not take it to any shop. Usually ull know if they know what theyre doing based on the price they give you. I had it done by a guy who worked for ford for 25 years. So he charged me 350. I heard they charge anywhere from 300 to 500 even. N yes if you dont tune it ur speed gauge is gonna b off

Gears that are to steep Will cause you to be at excessively high rpms when cruising at highway speeds, resulting if poor gas mileage. My quote was with gears included. What tuner do you have? When looking for a shop be Well informed and ask lots of questions.

Cool, I have the same one. You should be able to adjust your gear ratio on your tuner correcting your speedometer.

It's not something you want to do yourself. If they aren't installed correctly you will have a really loud whine like Davedd was talking about.

I did it myself and it whined like a tornado siren. It's really tricky to get them adjusted correctly.

It's not worth the headache. 3 hours and 300$ later you can be done with it if you have a shop do it.
