I use 3.73's but i have a built aod 4 speed tranny with short gears and it sucks on the highway. I'm at 3000 rpm going 60 mph in 4th gear. I think you would be happy with 3.73's and a 5 speed for the street tho. If you are more worried about saving a few MPG's than go 3.55's

3.73, or if you are super concerned about gas (in which case i don't know why you bought a mustang) 3.55

Screw the 3.73. I say a 4.56 would be perfect. On a mostly stock engine, that should get you to the end of the 1/4 mile at about 5500 with a 245/50/16 in 4th at roughly 92-94 MPH. Anything less than that is a compromise. As you add more HP over time, just keep putting bigger tires on :eek:

I have 3.91's in the falcon and they pull real nice. I'd go 4.10s if you want to have more fun, 3.73s if you want slightly better mileage but not very noticeable.
