Beat to death and back, but im looking for someone that has experienced first hand

i have 373 gears, but want 410s . Its a 5 speed. i still have yet to find someone that has actually gone from 373s to 410s and could give me some insight on whether it is worth the cost to swap. some people say its not enough, some people say its like night and day......but no one has ever had 373 first. they just went straight to 410 i would like a real world opinion. thanks

I put 4.10 gears with 31 spline moser axles in my old mustang for 120$. I wrecked it bought another mustang that had 3.73 gears. I swapped the rearend out of my new mustang with my built rearend that had 4.10 gears myself and it was worth it to me, it was a big difference.

Stock gears to 4.10s is just crazy difference feels almost like a different car, with 3.73 gears to 4.10s it's still a big difference.

I would get 4.10s and sell your 3.73 gears.

Yeah I would tell you to do it, but others may say otherwise. I loved 4.10 gears, when I drove my car with 3.73 gears I hated it. Made a pretty big difference with the swap.

4.10s on a modular. Hell, even 4.30s if you have a 02-04 car. Those had a .62 overdrive so 4.30s aren't going to kill you on the highway like they would in a 01-down SN95. You just have to be aware that with 4.10s or 4.30s and the 3.37 1st gear, you have to be prepared to shift REAL fast into 2nd.

Well you can use a GPS app and take your speed on the GPS, rpm, tire size and overall ratio and plug it into a RPM calculator. Just google RPM calculator, its the first link, then scroll to the bottom.

Or jack the car up in the rear, mark the DS and tire and spin the tire so the tire rotates once. However many times the driveshaft rotates in one tire spin is your gear ratio. Example, 3 and 3/4 the way around is 3.73s, 4 times is 4.10s, 3 and 1/2 is 3.55s and so on.

Jack it up from the rear end, mark the wheel and the driveshaft. For one full rotation of the wheel that is how many times the driveshaft will turn (4.1 times, 3.7 times ect)

Yeah doing it the other way would mean your rear tires would be doing like 8,000rpm on the highway at 2,000 on the tach. Might be interesting to see the results...
