Re: 01 mustang gt questions

What RPMs are you at at say 55 or 70 mph?

And, it comes with an 8.8" rear end stock with 3.27 gears.

Re: 01 mustang gt questions

If you are changing the oil anyway you can pull the diff cover and count your ring gear teeth and your pinion teeth and divide them to get you your gear ratio, as for the replacement oil I would use Ford oil, it probably has friction modifiers that your limited slip diff needs.

Re: 01 mustang gt questions

8.8 stock
sounds like you have 3.73's (4.10's will be 3k rpm's at 80mph)
80-90 fluid and make sure the fluid has friction modifieer or you add it in
