4.10s are awesome but IMO needs a 6 speed. Therefore 3.73.

If you never get on a highway and cruise at 70+ then your fine. Otherwise you sit at a high rpm and that means drone with a loud exhaust lol. -> o/r x and flow super 40 + s2 racing clutch + 4.10 = drone...

Does it grab like hell when you pop it? I spin through 4th gear and stop when I shift 5th but it chirps haha. Mix of my power/torque and some bald tires.

Re: 99 cobra...

Go to the dealer and run the VIN to make sure the recall was done. 99's were recalled for lack of factory HP numbers.

I have 4:10's. They were already in the car, only gears I've driven, there pretty cool, just those rpms at 70+ kinda suck. At around 2700.
