it will go faster than 5.1 seconds.
gears is a cheap mod that does make a difference.
one of the basic mods like CAI, exhaust, gears.
everyone should do it.
unless you're a wuss.

A tenth or two.


0-60 times also vary depending on, but not limited to:

-atmospheric conditions
-tires type and condition
-tire inflation
-pavement surface
-each car breaks in differently and makes different power
-DRIVER!

Depending on what kind of driving you do you may get better mileage. Most mileage is dependant on how much stop and go, accelerating that you do. If it is pretty constant you may see an increase in mileage due to the fact that our car will be more efficient at this type of driving. Yes, you may see a 1 or 2 mph drop on the freeway, but may see gains in city driving. So depending on the mix you may see some improvements.

During normal driving I've seen no difference in mpg with the 4.10's in my car. When pushing it over 70mph it costs me maybe 1-2 mpg.

It's not just about 60' times. The extra torque multiplication makes the car a lot more fun to drive. Especially a car that has no low end power like these Mustangs, the extra gear makes a big difference. Sometimes I wish I went with 4.30s, but there's no point now as I will have a sueprcharger soon.

Probably because that isn't really true. Maybe if you just drive on the highway constantly, but for normal mixed driving, not so much. I didn't notice any change in my milage...

Nasty.. your car has 500 horsepower. It's a bit different for a bolt on car

OP: I don't think anyone can answer your actual question. Noone really ever measures 0-60 time to compare. It will make the car faster though, which is worth the money.

I love the 4.10s for an n/a car. I mostly drive mine on the streets though. The advantages over the stock 3.31s, when street driving, include better acceleration (more fun) and the fact that I'm in 5th gear at 40-45 mph (better mileage). However I really don't do much highway/freeway driving with the car.

Are you saying 4.10s for bolt ons and 3.55s or 3.73s for a car with a blower and/or 500 rwhp?

Yes, i second that because of your power band. If i am correct, by the time your car builds up boost and pressure you have to shift. That is a problem we were running into in my friends car. He has a 72 dart swinger. 408 SC with 3.91's. He took them out and put his 3.55 in there and put the 3.91's in his big block barracuda.

My car builds boost as soon as I go WOT but anyways it's kind of a little joke around here about which gears, etc.
