4:30's A crazy gear???

Has anyone on here installed a set of 4:30's in a 5 speed 2v? How much would I pick up over the 3:73's I have now in the 1/4?

Re: 4:30's A crazy gear???

I know they make 4.30's...but that's a lot of gear man...if you get them, get ready for your head to be through the back of the headrest, lol.

I remember seeing a post on allfordmustangs from a guy who installed them in his 96 GT. He said he loved them and still had use of 1st gear.

I was also looking at the 4:56's but they may be a bit much!

Re: 4:30's A crazy gear???

You really need to look at how you drive the car, and what kind of RPMs you'll be turning at the speeds that you normally drive. It would be way to much for me. I had 3.73's in my old Camaro. That's about as much gear as I could ever see myself dealing with on a daily basis. Now, if I had a six-speed car, with the 0.50 overdrive, I might be able to handle 4.11... But I haven't ever had any personal experience with that setup.

plus if you are doing 8th mile maybe~ but 1/4th.. you will be in 5th when you cross the line lol... thats not good for times.

I would be happy with 3.73s, you would pick up a couple tenths maybe but its not worth the hassle IMO.

Re: 4:30's A crazy gear???

I have 4:10s in my car now. gears are a great way to make up for lack of hp. I wish I did 4:56s. I've had bigger gears before. the only way it's really not good on the street is if you do a lot of interstate driving. i.e. more than 50 miles a day everyday. As long as you have an overdrive trans anything under 5:XXs is ok
