Question: Gear change for a 2012 V-6?
This is an area in which I have very limited knowledge so am calling on the collective wisdom here - I am interested in any and all info concerning the plausability of changing the rear gears in an upcoming V-6 convertible. Since I ordered the convertible model I am blocked (by Ford) from adding the Performance Package option, which includes the 3.31 rear end. So I am stuck with the base 2.73 from the factory.
Is it worth it to change them out after delivery? If so can anyone advise a supplier, and a ballpark cost at what it would run? And what ratio to use; do I just go the whole route and go to 3.73? Seems like most of the GT's I saw on the lots had the 3.73 option as an option on the sticker...
Oh, one thing, I will have the 6-spd manual tranny, just looking for a little more zip off the line, not really concerned about top end. About the only other mod I plan to make is a CAI and a tune, so am assuming I could have the tune account for the gear change also, right?
Appreciate any feedback from you all - thanks!
