That makes sense.

If your not going to be adding forced induction soon I recommend getting the 3.73s for the manifold, with the power curve being shifted into the upper band you need the gears to get you there, I am a solid fan of 3.31s on stock manifold, thats for sure.

I agree completely... I have a Boss IM and 3.31's and have been thinking about going 3.73... I would like to add a Paxton SC later on... Might be longer than I hope so would it be beneficial to just do the 3.73's now and switch back to the 3.31's or go 3.55's?

Is it worth it to have the Boss IM? I can't honestly answer that. I bought the car used and it was already on... So I don't know what the difference is power wise... I know it looks better to me. I know I would have to reinstall the gears, that's why I haven't bought the 3.73's yet... but is it better to go 2 or 3 years, that's the soonest I see it (FI) happening. . Or to change it now and change it back when I decide on FI?

Lol it's something that no one can answer for you.

Is spending:
- $160 (3.73 gears)
- $100 (install kit)
- $200-300 (gear install)
- $100 (second install kit to go back to 3.31)
- $200-300 (3.31 reinstall)
--------------
Total: $760-$960

So its it worth almost a thousand for 3.73 gears that will net you about .2-.3 sec faster 0-60/quarter mile times for 2-3 years?

Yes if u can afford it but don't want/need .2-.3s
Yes if u can afford it and want .2-.3s faster times
Yes if u can't afford it and absolutely want .2-.3s faster times
No if u can't afford it and want .2-.3s faster times
No if u can't afford it and don't want .2-.3s faster times
Yes if u are going FI in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 months or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 days but u can afford $1000
Yes if u are going FI in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 months or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 days but u CAN'T afford $1000 but you absolutely must have it.
No if u are going FI in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 months or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 days but u can't afford it just wait
No if u are going FI in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 months or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 days but u can afford $1000 but you don't want to spend $1000

That being said if I had control over your mind and bank account then yes I'd do it. And I would stick with N/A unless u upgrade ur transmission and your internals and also ur suspension to put the power down.

Is all good just asking a question. I'm new to this and unaware of all the costs of this all. You see the costs of this stuff (gears- $160) and hope all you need is the install cost, again hoping it's not much... oh well maybe I'll just keep the 3.31's now till I decide for sure about the 3.73's. There is so much to do with these cars.. Not sure what to start with or which route to go in. That's why I ask.

Well sounds like u don't have too much extra cash laying around for your mustang hobby.

The reason I say don't do anything is that with FI u will put extreme wear on the engine and if u go past 500-550rwp then it would be best to get forged internals. Else you may find yourself in a bad situation.

N/A is typically safer than FI or nitrous. 420/430whp is plenty for street daily driving.

Thanks again... I don't have a lot of extra money lying around... That's why I said I don't plan on getting one for a few more years. I'm retiring from the Marine Corps in just over a year but don't wanna invest that kind of money into my car right now. Once I'm settled and get a decent daily driver than I can get more into it seriously.

Love my combo, especially since I recently added a 1-piece aluminum driveshaft. The Boss was an awesome upgrade!

What upgrades do you have? I've been thinking about a 1 piece D'S also. Just so many choices and not sure what to do first. Lol.

Engine paint. If you're in prison, and have lots of time on your hands, you could hand sand the cast finish off for a smooth finish. Heh

My last dyno here was 461 rwhp, on an Italian made dyno (I'm in the UAE).

Must be a weird dyno, those mods shouldn't put it anywhere near that much power.

Perhaps, however two factors to consider is this is on 98 octane premium, not diluted us-spec 91, and at sea level in Dubai, while we were tuning it.

Wow, I wish we could get gas like that here. That might actually be possible with that gas. I wonder what my car would put down with 98 premium.

I just recently pulled the trigger on a Boss Intake and dyno tune. The tune was a bit conservative, as she's my daily driver, but she put down 404rwhp. I intend to get a set of long tubes and midpipe to help squeeze out that extra bit of horse power.

This may be a dumb question, but can it still be a LEGAL DD with long tube headers?

Technically no, but I live in a non-emissions state. I plan to get GT500's to quiet it down just a little.
