3.73's or 4.10's

Was reading reviews on American muscle and one guy said that you feel a difference with 3.73's but if you really wanted to unleash the beast in your car 4.10's would be the best ones. Any different experiences

Manual or auto, dd or track. I have 3.73s in a manual and its fantastic (dd). 4.10s are pretty much the only "popular" gear choice I've had 0 seat time in. For me I think my limit would have been 3.90s if they were available by ford racing.

3.73 unless you don't drive on the highway ever. The 11+ gearing in the transmission is completely different than the old 5 speeds

Nice
Their 159.00 on American muscle. Would I need the other kit they offer for an additional 39.99? Or is it straight forward just the gears and that's that?

Are you sure you're looking at the right kit? I think the kit we need is 275.00.

Auto? 3.31 or 3.55. Anything more is way too aggressive.

Take a look at each of your transmission ratios and you will understand why I'm saying this.

I'm looking at getting 3.73s installed as well! Can anybody confirm or deny whether or not you NEED the installation kit or can you just purchase the gears themselves?

Buying the full kit ($278 option) depends on how much mileage you have on your car. If its brand new, you can get away without it. But it be wise to invest that extra money

Alright I'll probably just purchase the whole kit then. Appreciate the quick reply!

^^^This. I didn't get the kit with my 3.73s but my car was still new. If my car had some miles on her or some track use I would have definitely invested into the kit. Even if your car is fairly new it doesn't hurt to get the kit.

I personally think 3.55 will be a better choice for a dd. especially more power you add to your car. The less gear you need

I agree with this....but if youre not going to turbo or supercharge the 3.73's are better for most of the simple bolt ons we do to our Mustangs.

^^^This. If I s/c next year I'll see how the 3.73s are, but if I have a hard time launching I'll have to go down to 3.55s or 3.31s.

Honestly with pro charger the only supercharger platform available for 3.7s, you will be better off with 3.73s to get a nice off the line launch. But if you end up going turbo, then yeah 3.55s or 3.31depending on how bad your traction is.
