Way more than the mod 4.6. But we spin awesome. Definite trade off. I would rather the torque off the line.

I was thinking if 373 don't pull enough for you that you're probably pushing a hard low end gear. How can you say 373 don't push hard but 390 do? I don't see how you can feel the difference between two close gears like that.

I can tell you there is a difference. Tell you what. Do what I did then form an opinion. Otherwise it's just talk. I drove 2 new edge cars. Just like my previous post said. The 3.90s pull way harder...just like I said...just cause 'you can't see it' doesn't make it so

I would have assumed the same thing for real. Hell, what are stock gears in a GT? 3.27?

I don't mean to get under your skin I'm just saying. I have experience with gears 273 327 355 373 410 and I just don't see how you can tell between 373 and 390 but if you can, you can.

If you go with a simple setup it will look good, get some cobra side skirts and Mach 1 chin spoiler and your good to go

If you wqnt it to look good, oem style kits look good, just stay away from the badges.

Yep, badges are in the forbidden zone! There is a v6 I saw yesterday. All stock except for a huge tin wing and cobra badges all over the damn thing, some not even where the real ones had em ie both sides of the trunk and one on the hood!

It's a shame, even those who try to hide the fact that it's a six don't realize that the real mustang guys and gals know better. One would have to do much better than some badges to fool me....

Damn. Totally forgot about pics. I'll upload them tomorrow. I got them taken. I need to blurr my plate and I'll put them up. That's so sad to see a Stang that messed up. . I saw a mustang the other day with a huge wing and the taillights had two jap circles instead of 3 segments. So so sad...

If you see stuff like that, snap a pic if you can. I have a collection going on over on my forum of ****ed up Mustangs.
My plates are all over this site man. I wouldn't worry about it.

Unless you have something to hide online then your plates can't hurt you.
