Help, what should be my next mod?

I currently can't make up my mind on which mod I should get next. I either want to get the 73MM BBK throttle body or ford racing 4.10 gears. Thank you in advance.

Why would you get the throttle body? Waste of money if your naturally aspirated. Definitely go with the gears.

okay thank you. Which gears would be best for my 11' automatic v6? Can't decide between the 3.73 and the 4.10.

I don't have much yet. Just a Steeda high flow CAI and a hybrid tune. Also have a Borla Atak catback that I'm installing soon.

Will 4.10s really suck in a manual? I'm leaning toward 3.73s but still on the fence.

Yea you'd have to shift constantly , much earlier, and it'd be a pain IMO. Especially for a daily driver. 3.73 would be a perfect balanced gear ratio for manual

Hes going FI bro those and 410s are too much for a FI car. U gotta go with something less since your gna have more hp to spin them wheels. He doesnt need excessive wheel spin thats why I say 355s. If he was a v8 going FI id say 331s are good

okay thanks man! So 400 is not bad since the job would actually be under warranty.

Oh wow fords installing it for 4 bills? Thats great!!! Thats the cheapest ive ever heard ford do it for!

Yea man u can get a supercharger for 5500 and install it yourself bro its straight forward. Then either buy the tune or the tuner and tune combo and upload the tune so u can drive to a dyno shop and have it custom dyno tuned

Yes sir! Well, that's probably because I actually work at the dealership. So I guess I'm getting it done at an employee price. Yup! My buddy and I are going to help install it ourselves. He is also saving to get it on on his 11 V6 Mustang. I already have the tuner! I could just request the supercharger tune from Bama at no additional charge right? At least until I can run to a shop and have it custom dyno tune.

3.55 and there's a slight risk they deny your rear end warranty. 3.31 and almost any dealership won't mind at all.

I was on the fence and ordered both the 3.31 and the 3.55's...going to run the 3.31's.

Oh thats sweet!!

And no bama doesnt make that tune bro it comes from procharger themselves u need to buy just the tune from them. Which is like 250 since its a supercharger tune not a NA tune. So buy the tuner kit, buy the larger injectors, then buy just the tune bro and u should be fine. Or if your going to a great tuner they can make u a base map tune that can get ur car running and tune from there. But I would only do this if that tuner deals with mustangs and power adders alot.
