For me my 2.73s were so bad I almost considered getting rid of my baby. I was like, where's the 305hp. 3.31s were OK that I test drove, and a mustang club members 3.55s were really nice that I was a passenger in, and my 3.73s were just what I was looking for. I haven't had seat time with 4.10s but for me 3.73s were great. Tbh there wasn't much of a difference between 3.55s and 3.73s and would have been just as happy with 3.55s.

I have had very good luck with my used Fays2 unit. Between my two '14s, it has seen several track weekends, not insignificant air time, won its class for the year (only faster American cars in the VA region were a pair of lovely SSP C5 Z06's), and survived a catastrophic rollover (never let someone borrow your car, it will end poorly) and was swapped to the replacement car. My only issue as an engineer regarding the design would be the lack of high misalignment Heim joints, as those would help keep the lateral location rods from tapping the body of the Heim (it would be nice if the propeller were in double shear also, but no link out there does that). Are there better options, maybe, but the list would only be Cortex or Griggs, white line has had much scarier failures than this (and more numerable). My only issue with the Griggs/ Cortex units are the diff cover pivot being impossible to mount in double shear (even if you make a cover that allows the propeller to be in double, the cover is still in single to the 8.8 housing, using mount locations which were not designed to be load bearing). There really are no perfect answers once you go off the deep end...

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

Totally understand your point, maybe my car with the stock 225/60/17 help the 2.73 not feel bad. When I had the axel exchange ds and Mac shorties the tires would break loose from a rolling punch in first at 4500rpm stock tune
