You're making me feel like a rich pompous dickhead. I don't have a lot of money. I do alright.

Point I'm making is I knew what I was getting into by having a mustang. I used to have a lifted '99 Tahoe with a 5.7 350 V8 and it got roughly 8mpg. Haha. So gas isn't anything but a thing.. Kinda like a "look cool and go fast" tax. I just accept it.

Re: 1/4 times

his comment was hardly 'smartass'... i thought it was an attempt to be funny, while at the same time being serious about his conviction that maybe a mustang, no matter how or where you drive it, is just plain more fun with 4.10's than stock or even 3.73 gears.

me personally, i think i'm going to go with the 3.73's, but if i didn't do so much highway driving, or was planning on spending good deal of time at a track, then i would use 4.10's.

p.s. anyone with knowledge and firsthand experience editing timing to alleviate ping issues with their sct tuner please pm me. Thanks!

Bunch a variables, but you see what I mean.
That is interesting to look at it that way, and that may explain why the city driving is better MPG's.
