Question for FI Owners

For those of you with S/C or T/C V6s, what rear end do you use and why? I'm just trying to learn here. Is there any reason you'd ever want any gear ratio deeper than 3.73:1 on a car that's 'charged? Then I would like to ask if you still use your car as a DD, or if at this point it's a weekend car?

Thanks!

Twin screws/roots 3.73 or lower because they have instant boost and you'll just lose traction or just get fatter tires. The rest somewhat "build" boost such as centri's that dont hit full boost until about 3500rpm and turbos have to build boost and have some lag so 4.10's would be a good equalizer in acceleration.

3.55s are best for turbos

I have 4.10s with SC. getting grip is an issue but with 305s in the back Nittos it's good along with good suspension you'll be set. the amount of torque or feel of torque is amazing. at first without good traction I'd spin and fishtail up to 60 mph but now it's awesome and my 0-60 is 3.9-4.0 because of the 4.10s. if I had any other gear it would be worse. I'm a huge advocate for 4.10s but you must be willing to put forth $$ for suspension! I'm a dd btw.

Thanks for your replies, guys. 13 stang22, are your 4.10s with an automatic or standard transmission? DD or weekend/race only type setup?

When you say $$ for suspension. What all suspension do you need or have to keep the car planted from the launch?

I started with UCA and LCAS. it wasn't enough. so I got eibach sport line kit with sway bars shocks struts etc. and that planted my a*s on the ground. that combined with fat tires will do the trick for a 500 hp car. I spent roughly $1500 in suspension. it's a decent price for what it did.

Yea bro what other procharged 3.7 with 490 rwhp is there lol I want my car to be where yours is eventually.

Than I'll get a stick shift corvette and mod the **** out of that and that will be the weekend toy with over 800 rwhp. Keep the v6 as the dd with 450 rwhp. lol in my dreams at least

Suspension is my next then I will definitely get big better brakes. Also what kind of driveshaft did you get? And does it vibrate at all around 120-150 while you accelerate or decelerate?

I'm not answering for 13stang22, but I see that question come up a lot and to me, the answers are pretty obvious.

A GT doesn't just cost more to buy. It costs more to own. The insurance on a GT is not an insignificant factor. And if you love modding cars, you are probably going to pay more there, too. V6s are inexpensive to buy and to own and that makes modding them up very attractive to some people. Yes, maybe a guy or gal can sink as much money into a V6 as just buying a GT straight up. But that GT is still going to be more expensive even just to have it sitting in your garage doing nothing.

at 160 it vibrates a little. any speed between 130-160+ it vibrates on deceleration. and it was custom made. 1 piece aluminum. pretty much same as AM except cheaper. it was $550.

[QUOTE="2 Stangz;1849880"]Mr. 13 stang22 I have a question for you I must admit you have a very very nice v6 you got there... But why didn't you just get a GT,

I had a fast truck that got 7.5 mpg. I was broke all the time cause of gas and insurance was outrageous cause of my engine swap. I traded it for a 2013 3.7 because it was a fun car that had great mpg and low insurance costs. once I saw American muscle. com I got hooked. lol. but I get 20 mpg on average with nearly 500 hp to the wheels. I'm more than happy. when I beat other v8s they always ask me what I got in my 5.0 and I say it's a v6 and they never believe me and the look on their faces is priceless. I still got a lot more potential left in the 3.7 also. I want to maintain a good power to mpg ration and the 3.7 does that for me!

True. GT's use more gas, cost more for insurance, and even the mods themselves are generally more expensive.

You guys do have good points there, and everyone has their own preference. Me, I put ab 11K and 100+ of my own hours into my 06 V6 that I bought for 9K and unfortunately only had it for 1.5 years. Loved it to death and I have no regrets with it. But when I bought my Premium GT man all of it was there already from the factory, and the V8 exhaust note and badge is worth the crazy high insurance rate ha.

As far as gas goes everyone knows the old 4.0 got sh*t gas mileage GTs even get better mpgs.

everyone has different reasons for buying what they buy. I know what 817 rwhp + nitrous feels like. lol nothing compared to that when I was test driving cars but that beast of a truck got me 6.5 mpg. I needed something that could meet my financial standards. 5.0 is nice but I love my procharged 3.7.

Did you think about getting a turbo or only wanted a supercharger.? I'm thinking about getting a turbo eventually because the wear and tear on the motor wouldn't be as bad or is that just bs

Does anyone know a turbo 3.7 running successfully? I see s/c ones but not turboed ones. & the few I've seen try to turbo it have blown their motor. That's just what I've encountered tho!

honestly bro I don't idk much about turbos. I went with procharger because it was the simplest option. I like instant boost and turbos have turbo lag I believe
