4:10's looking to put in.

Have a 2012 v6 auto. I was told they work well with automatic. Wondering what are the pros and cons of having them?

I get high revs past 70mph but I'm a 4.6. So I've heard 10's and auto go hand and foot, or hand (both mean good)

City type driving, they work well. Highway driving, the engine is at the top end of its power range; fuel mileage suffers.

What type of driving do you do? Consider a 3:73 as a comprimise.

Highway driver. My understanding is the gears make the car faster? Quick at launch?

Might want 373s then. Gears improve acceleration

If you do highway driving, I'd think of 3:55's or 3:73's

Your stock 17" tire is 27.6"Dia. I recommend the 3.73 with this tire. Try www.speedconcepts.net for an entire brand new 3rd member already set up for $999. Just bolt it in. If you see a 28" drag radial in your future maybe the 4.10. I assume you have an automatic. If you have an MT82 stay with the 3.73.

I got 3:73 gears and love them but you could easily do 4:10's with our 6 speed.

Nice. But the 410 mpg? There any big difference in the 373 and 410?

No. Not much if any. There's not a big difference between stock and 4.10 either typically. I went from 3.27 to 4.10 and lost maybe 1-2mpg hwy. gained or stayed even on city.

I would think the mpg between 3:73 and 4:10 gears would be minimum. My definition of minimum would be maybe 1 mpg. I was getting 30 mpg highway with my 2:73 gears and now get 28 mpg highway with 3:73 gears. You can see a huge jump in gear but only 2 mpg gallon difference. If I were to do it all over again knowing what I know now, I would go 4:10's however I love my 3:73 gears. Having 6 speeds with 4:10's is not like the older mustangs with 4 or 5 speed.

The change isn't cheap so think this out. It makes the car come alive. I don't know anyone that regretted doing the gear change. I run a 3.55 and it's killer with my 4.23 first gear. Helped a ton on the 60' and I now get into 4th gear on the top end. Mileage went down because I drive like I stole it.
