gears and tuner questions

hello again...

long story current stang is bound to die eventually with its age and ohio winter driving(salt) looking for "cheapish" bolt on to improve performance until she kicks the bucket then gonna buy the same yr and model and transfer the bolt-ons and such to the new born.

1986-12 Mustang 8.8" 3.73 Ratio Rear End Gear Kit with Ford Racing Gears at LRS - Same Day Shipping!

/\/\/\....include everything i need besides the hole me installing them? Worth the money and shop fees(not bad but still $$)?


SCT 4-Bank Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes (94-98 GT) at - Free Shipping!

/\/\/\...worth it again with just bolt on or go for tuner or not worth money at all?

Don't get paid much in the service as a new guy so money needs to spend right and as needed. any info is great

Re: gears and tuner questions

well a tuner is great but I would only do it after I had all the other mods (or all the main ones) as thats when you will get the best out of it. The tuner is just a device to relay the tune, the tune is what really matters. You want to get it from someone that has good support, will update for tweeks as needed and you need to get it checked on the dyno no matter what.

I would say for the 400 invested in a tuner + what ever the tune costs expect 10-20rwhp depending on your level of mods. 20 would be the very high end of course.
