I'm a first time Mustang owner, and I currently have an automatic 2011 V6 Mustang
Vert with an Airaid CAI, 91 Bama Race tune, and Borla S-type catback; however, I find the "pull" a bit disappointing when compared to my buddys' 350z and BMW 335 v6 turbo. I presume this is partly due to my 2.73 gears. (Yea I know there is a bhp and weight diff).
I use this car as a DD and drive roughly 80-90 miles 3x-4x a week. I use 93 octane gas.
I've read countless threads about 4.1 gears for auto trannies; though, I know gas mileage suffers substantially above 65 mph, and I drive consistently ~70-80 mph (speedlimits). Driving 65 mph on the highway in florida
would piss a lot of drivers off as the unofficial speed is +10 over limit.
Is the 4.1 for auto trannies all that its cracked up to be? Or is 3.73 the better choice considering my driving conditions?
I could spare 1-2 mpg drop highway (is that being too conservative). Any thoughts?
