Most suggest 3.73 as highest daily driver.

I'd go 3.73 also. Some people like the 4.10's with the modular motors but I think 3.73 will keep the revs relatively low on the highway yet give you a good kick in the pants on acceleration.

4.10s. I drive my mustang 35 miles to work one way. Rpm's are reasonable, less than 2500 @ 70, and I still get 20 mpg. I love my 4.10 and would have been disappointed with anything leas.

4.10s are good with an auto but for a manual keep it 3.55 or lower. I have 4.10s with a t-5 and its a bit too steep of gearing for my taste

So pay $1000 to go from 3.27 to 3.55? Keep in mind what year mustang he is driving.

Had 4.10s in my Cobra and loved them so much I put them in my 07. I now have 3.73s in my 2011 and they are just ok to me. I'm not going to change them for the simple fact that I may slap a blower on later. If you plan on a blower then keep in mind your gears.

4.10 would be great with a Procharger. It will get you in that power band faster. If you were doing a KB or Whipple I would stick with 3.55s or 3.73s.
