2000 gt gears and tuner combo?

I just got a 2000 mustang gt 5 speed with flowmasters. I wanted to get the 3.73 gears and tuner kit from American muscle. Is this kit worth it and will it give me a noticeable gain in power. What other mods are a must. All post are appreciated.

there will be no gain in horsepower from the gears but it will make it accelerate ALOT quicker i found the american muscle kit to be the cheapest deal

Re: 2000 gt gears and tuner combo?

+1 on the FRPP gears you are going to have to change the pinion bearing probably and need a new crush sleeve for the pinion so you just as well get the bearing kit and do your axle bearings while you are at it. I recommend the SCT Xcal 3 with the kits at AM I don’t think they offer it just the SF3. I would check with AM and see if they would sell you the Xcal 3 instead of the SF3 they are the same price. Good luck.

Re: 2000 gt gears and tuner combo?

ford racing are probably the best gears to guy, gears usually dont break its the other parts that do. The ford ones are plenty strong for a DD car and occasional track car.

Install is a ***** expect 400 dollars for a good install for just the gears fyi.

A tuner is needed for speedo calibration but it wont do much of anything for power, but if you are going to do it go with a really good tuner, not just an off the shelf tune. Buy the tuner from whom ever you wish and then buy a tune from someone and load it on the car using the tuner. The only issue is to buy a tuner that the person you are letting tune the car can use.

You need to find a tuner in your area, or go to SCT's site and can locate one in your area.

Depending on the shop they may make you purchase a hand held, but most do have the capability with out you purchasing a hand held tuner.
