Cam swap, stock heads and bolt-ons isn't near stock these days?Yeah.. maybe a near stock car. Try that with actual power.. enjoy wrapping your car.
Unless his was an AOD car orig it had either 2.67's or 3.08's. Even my 95 cobra had 3.08's in it..Cam swap, stock heads and bolt-ons isn't near stock these days?
3.73 or lower is pretty standard unless you have a blower/turbo. Stock the car probably came with 3.27 so going to a 3.55 is barely a noticeable change.
Worrying about tenths from a set of gears lol. Totally man.. def. worth it to turn 3k on the freeway burning up gas at a much higher rate, haha.I've never got a car with stock gears so IDK TBH.
I drove my Red 95 with 4.10s everywhere, didn't really care too much what the RPM was at on the freeway these cars get pretty crap mileage to begin with so not much of a concern when I was more worried about turning out good ETs.
For the record, I didn’t notice sht for mpg difference when going to 4.10 gears.Worrying about tenths from a set of gears lol. Totally man.. def. worth it to turn 3k on the freeway burning up gas at a much higher rate, haha.
Maybe use some of the money you save for some real hp.
You roll around on ET Streets all the time? Lol.. look who people are listening to on here. Shocker.When your Mustang is really only good at straight lines a few tenths is worth it over MPG, gas is cheap if I wanted to save it I'd of bought a Prius.
Also the jump from 3.55 to 4.10 isn't even that bad on the freeway like you make it out to be in top gear.
With a 26" tire and .68 OD.
3.55 will pull around 1900 rpm @ 60mph
4.10s will pull around 2200 rpm @ 60mph
Even lower RPM if you roll around on a set of 28" et streets like I have.
Not saving much gas money with 300~ rpm difference on the freeway, and you may even see better MPG around town since the car rolls out easier.
Everyone is afraid of the gear without even pulling up a gearing calculator to look at what it actually does.
Lower HP cars like OP has will do well to have more gear will get into the power band quicker and make it easier to stay there.
We get it.. your car is slow and you need a couple tenths from the cheapest parts you can afford. Thanks for the heads up.For the record, I didn’t notice sht for mpg difference when going to 4.10 gears.
Engine speed isn’t sht when your computer tune is based on air going in and not engine engine speed.
The only thing that changes when going to 4.10s is engine speed. The air it takes to get said rpm is still the same thing, so fuel still compensates the same.
Maybe you should spend less time bashing other people, and learn how the fuk to give some useful advise.
Idk if you’re aware of this, but tenths are the difference between winning and losing races.
You’re quickly learning how to alienate people.
People need not fear the lower gear.
My car puts down more power to the wheels n/a than a lot of people make with forced induction.We get it.. your car is slow and you need a couple tenths from the cheapest parts you can afford. Thanks for the heads up.
Again, if you think street tires and 4.10's and actual HP is smart, then you've clearly never owned a car with that much power.. which explains you and the other dudes bs opinions.
Street tires + 550rwhp + 4.10's = you're an idiot. I don't care what the ing calculator says,
