Well 1st gear is almost useless with 4.10s and street tires for NA so I would think it might be a little much. I'm still NA and I sometimes wish I had gone with 3.73s for my dd. I think 3.55 or 3.73 would be better.

What did you say? You wish you had gone 3.73s instead of 4.10s?

OP, you already have the gears. Wait and see how it does? If I remember you're getting a centrifugal supercharger. At low rpm it will pretty much drive the same as it does now. It's when you romp on it that you really feel the difference. With street tires in first and second, if you are not careful, the wheels will break loose and you'll hit the rev limiter.

4.10's and blown here with no problems. See how it feels once you add the supercharger. My car still feels slow down low. Doesn't really come alive until after 4500rpms.

I think 3.55's should do great. That would be a great combo and allow you to stay in Boost longer.

Drove my car with 4.10s and 375rwhp for a year and +425rwhp for another year and a half all on 295/35-18 street tires. Never had any issues. That was also on a stock suspension other than being lowered.

Wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Of you are going to try and race the car, you will need some sticky tires and suspension mods to get it to hook off the line

Why are you worrying about gas mileage when your putting a supercharger on your car.

Seriously lol this is a joke right

i made a simmilar thread on this last night. if you got 4.10's your not to bad off and you will probably like them. if you have to choose what gears to get i would choose them to what mile an hour you want your car to trap in the 1/4 mile

Your gas mileage wont go down it has the potential to drink alot more gas once you start getting on it but just cruizing around it want be too bad on gas. I was getting 330+miles on a tank of gas with a centri and 3.73s in the rear. Didnt really see any boost unless I started playing on the highway.

not my words but this is from vortech. What will a Vortech supercharger system do to my mileage?

When the supercharger system is installed as purchased, mileage often times improves due to the increased engine efficiency. If you tend to drive with a "heavy foot," your mileage may suffer

That's bs. I lost 1.5 mpg all city driving after putting the supercharger on. In the summer it got 11.5-12mpg. Now in the winter it gets 9.5mpg in 20 degree temps. The only mod that actually increased my city mpg was 4.10 gears. Mpg went up by about 1. When I tank up at at 1/4 tank left on the gauge I'm at around 120 mi. Few years back before I had a supercharger and longtubes it was at 160 mi at 1/4 tank left. This is all city driving not exceeding 35 mph.

it may seem silly to complain about mpg, yet supercharging and modifying a mustang which already gets poor mpg. but i wish to maintain 17+ mpg on average. i just dont want it to dip below that 17 mark. besides my gf's dad has a c5 vette and im tired of him bragging about how his car gets better mpg and is way faster

tell him when you hit mid life crisis and can afford a vette you'll look into that for "better gas mileage".

I don't think your gas milage will suffer much. I went from 23 mpg ot 22 mpg after the supercharger. Going to 3.73 gears had a greater impact. Those dropped me from 22 to 20 (sometimes 21) mpg.
