More low end torque?

Hey guys, looking for input on steps to take to increase the low end torque on my 11 V6. Bought her 2 months ago and she came with Roush cat-back and an Airraid CAI. As far as I can tell, these are the only mods. Don't know if it was ever tuned, and I don't know what the gear ratio is. Guessing 2.73 based on the torque. Looking to get a little more kick off the line. Advice?

3.73s will definitely help the car...

3.73s, headers, tune. A throttle body will give a slight kick to the acceleration.

What would I be looking at to have a shop swap the gears? Watched a couple of videos on it and it's definitely not something I'm set to tackle on my own.

Assuming you determined you don't have shorty headers, suggest you confirm your rear end gears. And of course you'll need a tune if you change your gears.

No shorties. How would I confirm the gears?

You can lift the car and if ford installed 2.73s or 3.31s, there will be a sticker on the rear axle area that says which it has. Assuming they are stock from Ford.

Or you can count revolutions of your driveshaft when turning wheel one full revolution. e.g. 2.73 =approx. 2 3/4 revolutions.

Or you can just look under the car from the rear, and should be able to see the sticker on the differential from there, no need to lift it. Well, not for me, anyway. They may not all be that easy.

On my former ‘12 V6 w/2.73 daily driver, I ordered a Steeda (street) tune that maximized low end torque. Nice improvement for a bone stock mustang. If I had to do it all over again, it would be 3.31 + Steeda tune.

Instead of getting on the ground to look at your differential... You can look at the sticker that is inside the door. It will most likely say CC for your axle code. In which case you have 2.73 which is the stock gear.

BB - 3.73 ratio
CC - 2.73 ratio
DD - 3.55 ratio
GG - 3.31 ratio
YY - 3.15 ratio

Hey Sjd

If you are looking for a bang for your buck kit that will really wake the car up, I would highly recommend the Ford Racing 3.73 Gears and BAMA X4 Tuner.

The difference will be day and night and you will absolutely love how the gears and tune transform your car.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

-Will
