I only included my video to make a point a car with 4.10's can hookup, since, in all your wisdom you said hooking up with 4.10's are a problem.

the video of the grey car is a 3.15 gear car before & after to give the guy an idea of how a car reacts to a converter.

I never mentioned 4.10's to the o/p, I only told him the truth that his choices aren't the best choices & he needs to pick a direction for the car before he worries about gears.

I agree that this is about the o/p, you are the one coming in here stiring things up, we were fine till you got here.

I can tell Ozzy your no help. You just run your pie hole. Did I spell any words wrong. Your too old to be acting a kid on these forums.

Yes it would be "you're" not "your" when you refer to a person.

All of you have it wrong! For the price of gears you could easily get every chrome attachment from auto zone, nos stickers, and a fake stick on hood scoop which will add like 500hp and you'll run 5s@1,000,000mph.

Every thread is the same thing, you guys argue for silly things, i havent been able to answer earlier because i flew into denver today, which btw has no cops!!!ive driven all day, not one cop car???
Back to the subject, i personally thank everyone, especially rack, you also have me some feed back on a fourth option. Due to certain circumstances ive decided (more like the wife) to get a gear that i can enjoy and will spin my 20s, becauase these 3.15 suck, idk why but they wont spin my tires on a regular burn out. The money that i will be spending is too large, house and new car, so with that said i either go 3.73 or 4.10...or nothing after i drive a couple friends cars when i get back, appreciate the help and i wish i could continue more modding but this trip has changed things for the better in my life

I have a 2013 5.0 Automatic and lets just say that I run my car, but not on the track

Which gear would be best for me, since I am not looking for 1/4 mile or 1/8 miles times?

Wow, This thread has gone right in the crapper. Good to know you V8 boys play nicely with each other as well. Real counter productive to help the OP's question. We go from which gear to install to English lessons and proper spelling of a word.

"Grabber Blue5.0" Will start teaching a English lesson over the internet, in also ever thread when he has a problem with someone's opinion.

Back on Topic..

Sound's like 4.10 is what your looking for, From your last post. I can break my tires lose if I want with traction control on with these gears. It was 3.73 or 4.10 for me and I'm very happy I went with 4.10, I could of changed the gears after I installed them and used them AS I has a little wining noise after the gears were installed the first time. I COULD OF GOT A DIFFERENT ratio than the 4.10 for the second instal. but I got another set of 4.10. That's saying how much I like driving with them.

The gas mileage went down just a little, I thought it would be more. Happy about that.

RPM just 400-500 more. Happy about that also.

BTW my stock gear's (From Factory) wined on costing around turn's and after the second instal it was gone.

Breaking your tires free means you are loosing traction. Sounds like a downside to me. Ideally you should be in here saying you can't break your tires free no matter how hard you try.

That is a good problem to have.

Right, but you missed mg point. My point is you can break them free. Ideally you should have the car to the point that you are not breaking free even when trying too.

No I don't have an auto, doesn't mean I cannot provide input. I mean you don't care about input from guys with autos that disagree with you so it doesn't really matter who says what too you they will be wrong.

Dude really. Read the post them add to them....

He said he can't do a burn out.


I have very good traction with my Supension.

IF IF

I want to do a burn out I can with the 4.10 gears•

If you don't have an auto you should move on just like the guy with the V6 mustang. Take your advice.

I don't have auto either but not fair they don't make my car in auto. Does that mean I don't get to input either?

I can't launch my car without burning out right now. I hope my suspension components cure that.

I'm probably going to make the switch from 3.73 to 4.10 once my suspension can handle them.

I didn't know not having something meant you can't comment on it. I guess you shouldn't ever comment about any part not installed on your car ever.

I wanted to chime in and see if I could help out here. Not trying to be a know it all or smart *** lol.

I did 5 minutes research an A.M. Looking at gears and they have a handy gear chart for 3:55 , 3:73, 4:10 and probably on up. By the chart the 3:55 in an Auto is very close to a 4:10 in a manual. And this shows RPM's in a given gear at a given MPH this could come in fairly handy for anybody considering a gear swap.

From actual experience...not hearsay

I have a 2013 GT auto and the stock 3.15 gears. I decided against gearing and went with a really good tune instead for this mustang. If I feel the need to spin tires I can in first...and chirp them easily in 2nd. My 0-60 tracked twice under 4 secs. Have performance tires and high quality rear LCAs installed. On the fence going to 3.55.

I could option out of the aggressive tune for a steeper gear, but I probably wont for these reasons:

Steeper gears = higher revs at EVERY speed, dont just focus on highway. Higher RPMs = higher stress on your engine. May be minimal at lower speeds, but the reality is its higher.

MPGs decrease...anyone that claims otherwise is flat out lying, unless afterwards you just drive slower/steadier and dont realize it. 2013 GT gets 15 MPG city ..a loss of 1 or 2 miles per gallon on a % basis is HUGE. Then again we didnt buy our stangs for gas mileage did we?

If you have the Ford Racing gears installed by anyone other than Ford and go steeper beyond its supported track pack package (3.73), you have just voided the power train portion of the factory warantee. In PHX at least.

Its a tough call my friend...3.55 with my current tune (best tune Ive ever had, hands down) would spin my car in a flippin circle. So do I downgrade a tune for steeper gears and need to be tuned forever more for my car to function? - Theres no going safely back to stock afterwards for service(may not be a factor for some). My last mustang (V6) with steeper gears became 150% more fun drive...yes, I know I shouldn't talk v6 here. Then again... could always re-tune the GT with 3.55 and hope its better

Think I just made the decision harder! dammit!

Stick with the stock 3.15's. It's been proven time and time again with time slips gears aren't the answer. Will your car "feel" faster? Yes. But it won't be faster. Also with a good tune you'll be spinning with 3.15's all day. Adding a gear just exasperates the situation.

They had one car make one run at 11.3 with a -1700 DA that day. You do know with that DA stock cars can break into the 11's? That's fantastic air. Yo have to post all the facts.

It's Ronnie's wife's car. And it has ran that time consistently. Went a little faster I believe also. It's just a matter of proper setup. Trapped 121 the first time it ran the 11.3 also

I know all about the car. Remember they run that car in Maryland at possibly the fastest track in America. That certainly doesn't hurt.

There is a lot more autos running 3.15's and 3.31's though. 95% of the faster ones are. In my mt-82 car gears were the best thing I have done.
