2014 Gt performance choice

Considering a Bama tune and Airaid MXP or...... 3:73 or higher rear gear.
Which way would you go on a DD automatic car ?

It sounds like you're on the right track! Bama tune, Airaid intake and Gears are the three most beneficial mods you can do for any Mustang, especially the 2011+ GT's. You'll notice huge gains in power, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response, shift points and much more from the tune! The intake will definitely add some power and a ton of engine noise.

Last but not least, the Gears! This is my personal favorite mod for sure. This will help you get off the line a lot harder and the car will be much more fun to drive. If I were you, since it's an AUTO I would probably go with a set of 4.10 Gears. 4.10's are a little much when you have a manual because the transmission ratios are different and you actually have to do the shifting yourself! But the AUTO's love that gearing.

This is just my recommendation. I hope this helps! Definitely let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

Considering 3.15 gears on a stock auto GT, how much MPG would be affected after installing 4.10's? I am presuming a significant impact?

You would definitely drop a couple MPG but it really depends on how you drive it. When I first did 3.73's in my 2011 GT I went from getting 17-18 MPG city to getting 12 MPG city, but that's because I was driving it like I stole it! Once I got used to the gears and drove normal again, I still get right around 16.2 MPG on a regular basis!

Hope this helps!

No need to change gears. I would do a converter well before gears. And a good tune from someone like AED, Lund, or VMP.
