You'll have higher top speeds with 3.73
But the 4.10s will be a heck of a lot faster

Chaseh504,

You definitely have a good set of mods so far, the Bama tuner paired up with the CAI will really wake your Stang up! A set of gears would be my next move as well. If your car is automatic I would get a set of FRPP 4.10s. However with a manual, 4.10s will cause you to shift a lot, so you may want to lean towards 3.73's.

The difference in top speed between the two gears are pretty small. However if you're going to go with gears I would recommend some suspension so you can help throw the power back! Even if it's just a set of lowering springs, that will lower your Mustangs center of gravity. Which will reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in the corners, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

- Dan

Quick question on lowering springs
If the stock struts are relatively new, can we still put he springs on them?

That's a big drop.. You'd need strut mounts, bumpsteer, panhard, shocks and struts. Might as well go coilovers imo. If I could go back that's what I'd do. Pricey but worth it. But I think about a 1" drop is fine. It looks almost perfect with my 18's. There's a bit of a gap in the rear and I think with 19's it'd be perfectly flush with the fenders.

lowering springs are EXSPENSIVE, but I hope it's worth it, does it just increase aerodynamic activity when driving, increase speed by a little and does the driving feel different at all?

I have the eibach pro kit, lowers the car 1.2 in the front 1.5 back from what I can remember. Take a look at my pics. Aside from looking 10x better, the car handles 10x better. The main improvement over stock is that it will lower your center of gravity, drastically increasing the handling
