I'm actually going 4.30, but my thought process was I wanted more acceleration off the line. I highly doubt I will ever be able to go over 95 without seeing a cop and traffic is bad in the city so what's the point of top speed to me...

I know LOTS of people the regret getting 3.73s because they aren't aggressive enough (of course there are happy people too), but I very rarely hear of anyone complaining that 4.10s were too aggressive.
I went with 4.10s and I absolutely adore them.
I still get 18 city and 23 highway too.

I have had both in my 02 GT 5 spd. started with the 3.73's and moved up to the 4.10's. 110 mph is no problem on a 1/4 track I end up in 4th @ 112. 4.10's are great I have since put them in a 97 V6 and a 89 5.0 and love em!

I'm going to order the ford racing ones thru American muscle, does the set provide everything I need to do the job or will I need to buy additional parts?

If you ever plan on having big hp numbers stay with 3.73s IMHO bolt on cars minor hp 4.10s are ok get into 400hp with 4.10s 1st gear is obsolete

I've got 3.55 gears and I'm boosted. IMO more than 3.55 on boost is to much unless u have a t56
