Get 3.90s. 4.10 is too much for manual. 3.90 is perfect. Good acceleration and good fuel economy.

Or 3.73s if fuel economy is more important than a little gain in acceration.

There will be a slight change, more of one the higher you go, but you should still hit at least 130... Maybe higher, I'm not really sure.

Yea we should take care of earth and plants and stuff. But everyone has to do it. Just a couple ppl going green doesnt really make a big difference cuz there is still someone littering or running no cats on there stang.
