More of sound than gains. You might notice it in the butt dyno but sound should get a tad deeper

Just read reviews and do your research. And after you install them let us know what you think of them!

They are finally on. I tried them out and I've got an increase in power no doubt. Not so much for sound but I now feel my chest being pulled back and a little of the feeling of going down hill fast

Just out of estimating how much horsepower do you think you've gained? I know it's just an estimate but shoot me a logical number.

I'm going to estimate roughly like 16hp? No joke. I felt a huge difference.

I have done several other mods and that is the next I am considering. Is it really a noticeable difference? Debating that or going to either 3:73 or 4:10 gears. Want a little more giddy up in my starts!

No 4.10s will definitely feel better but 3.73 are a better balance

I guess a good compromise would be to do both!

Yeah. Kind of leaning toward the 3:73s. Just want some better performance off the start but not looking to go to the track. Agree they're a better balance overall.

Which ever you pick make sure to get Ford racing not the Motive performance.

3.73s are not going to be as aggressive as the 4.10s, but will give you better gas mileage. Most people get 3.73s because they're better for daily driving and they still get you off the line pretty quick

How does the gas fluctuate between them?! Like how many miles per gallon will you lose with the 4.10

Only going on what I've read other places but 4-6 MPG decrease. Your RPMs will run higher with these gears. Somewhat like driving at highway speeds in 4th gear.

Noooooo....it's not gona be 4-6 mpg at all. You're looking at losing about 1-2mpg maybe by switching from 3.73 to 4.10

I was thinking more about comparing to stock gears so I am sure you are correct.
