Just got my 3.73 gears installed today. It made a big difference in the get up and go department. RPMM in San Diego did the install in 2 and a half hours and charged me 500 for the gears, install and oil.

When I ordered I ordered the 3.73's Stealer charged $395 (Stealers real price I think is $345 or something so there not making much on that option) - So that was a great price with labor and fluid.

Having a hard time not burning up the tires :yes

What made you settle on 373s rather than a set of 410s or 430s? Do you have a blower planned? Knowing how the new 4vs love to rev i probably wouldve gotten a set of 430s, thats just me though. Glad to hear your happy!

Just Laying down a foundation for a blower in the future. 4.30s would have been too much even for an N/A car with the close ratio gears in these 5.0s.

Ordered mine with the 3.73s so I wouldn't have to change them. Just one less thing...

lol well you think you could drop her down to 60 mph sometime and let me know what rpm your turning lmao.

Apparently about a dozen cars came through the dealership when I bought my stang that were labeled 3.55's and were actually 3.73's.

I am running around 1800rpm @ 60mph in 6th gear, maybe like 1850 or even 1900. But no more then that.

60mph w/ my 305/40's is right around 2k. I was another one that went 3.73 stock. It was the only option I HAD to have. If I decide to change it will be to a 4.30 and then I'll run a 28" tall tire and bring me back to about a 4.04 or something in that nature. It's late, I'm tired and can't think of the calculations to figure what the actual gear ratio is when you change from the stock tire size.

Wow thanks FiK

I wonder if I can raise some sort of stink and get a little free work done lol.
I bought my car labeled as 3.55's
My wife worked at the dealership for a little while and told me they had a dozen gt's come through in the month I bought my mustang that were mislabeled, said they were 3.55's and had 3.73's in them instead.

it appears that my 5.0 was one of them.

Thanks brother.
I must have 3.73's. Course I guess its not gonna matter I'm throwing 4.10's in it anyways.
Hoping to bust them 10's wide open here soon swervo.
Maybe the cai, manifold, and nx 100 shot with the 4.10's will get me there :d

There good brother. I'm in the same boat as you. I haven't had a chance to hang out with them either.

I went to the track with jeff and stacey and chris and the whole crew basically right before I deployed but when I was back I was so busy with the baby that I never could get out.

But hopefully now that she'll be a little older when I get back I can start doing events again and everything.

Would be nice to have you around though man. I got so many asian jokes and no asians around to tell em to :(
