    I want 4.10s but all i got is a stock engine now, I will be doing the PI swap, all 3 things.......so i was wondering if its alright if i go ahead and get 4.10s. I want my car to be a strip monster but still be able to be a red light beast. so give me your suggestions please. My engine has close to 82000K for now it will be my platform but when i have the money I will be swappin its engine with a 99-04 4.6 PI engine or maybe even a 351, wut other engines can i ponder on besides those two and of course the mighty 4v cobra ?????? 8)

    Well if your getting a blower and new engine, then just go with the 3.73s or 3.55s.

    See my signature... I wouldn't change a thing. Only reason I would get 3.73s or something higher will only be because I put a blower on it. But this car will be sold here in the next couple of days and I will probably buy a terminator. 4.10s all the way!!

    remember 4:10's will be too much gears for a blower car. Assuming you are talking about the 03/04 cobra engine.
