Re: Gears Q?

The steeper (higher) the gear the quicker the car accelerates. Also the higher you go the shorter (quicker) the lower gears will be, getting above 4.10's in a manual and I say you don't even need a first gear just start in second.

Generally manual drivers go with 3.73 and autos will install 4.10s but that is not a rule, it depends on what you want to do and the effects of the gears.

Gas mileage becomes affected by a few MPGs (usually drops) but this also depends on city/highway driving and more importantly the driver's habits.

Make sure to get them installed at a reputable shop and done right with warranty, assuming you're an amateur mechanic like most of us.

Re: Gears Q?

Well definitely get either Motive or Ford Racing gears. I think to be perfectly honest it's hard to tell you "the best" gear size to go with because then it goes straight to personal opinion. It won't add horsepower, it will just get you "off the line" faster. If you want that then go with the steepest gear you can find. However many people say that even the upgrade to 3.73 will kick your ***. If you have a manual you can meet in the middle between manual and autos and go with 3.90. If you have an auto you can always go one higher than 4.10 to just be different.

If it is a daily driver, or a car you plan on taking long drives with I would stay within the recommended ratio or else all the mod money may wind up going to gas.
