    I have a set of 4.10s that I plan on getting installed pretty soon. I have new bearings, gear oil (which ****ing reeks by the way). I also have a 70mm throttlebody to go on. Now thing is, I have full exhaust (longtubes included), ram air intake, 76mm maf. Should I put the throttlebody on and get a SCT chip. Or wait till I get a new upper and lower and just get a speed cal. Its a 5.0 aode

    The SCT won't do anything to correct the speedometer. It only works for the 99-04 cars with a digital speedometer. I wish it would work on our cars though lol.

    Pretty much the only options are to get a speedcal or do the speedometer gear change on the side of the trans and hope it corrects it close enough.

    If you only go to 3:55's then you won't need a speed cal. Just a 23 tooth VSS gear.

    You don't like the smell of gear oil? me neither, smells like ass. Its especially nice when you have an attached garage and the smell gets into the house.

    blows indeed, what is equally as important though is to recalibrate the inferred vehicle speed in the ecu, that way your shift points are more ideal, however, if it shifts fine now then no worries

    inaccurate, SCT support the 89+ mustangs as well, just not as well as the new ecu's

    I have never owned one of those so I wasnt going to comment. I just know they also work on the 96-98 so I adjusted his post.

    Yeah I read that before. Its an auto so I'm doing the 4.10s. Don't plan on forced induction, not sure about hci
    Its by far one of the worst smelling things ever. I opened the box and was like what the **** is that smell. lol

    Gear oil smells like roses compared to friction modifier
