    Ok so i am finally getting my car put back together in the next day or two or as soon as i get my king cobra installed. But i was wondering what i should do next, from looking at what I have done so far which isnt a lot what do you guys think gears or intake? I was leaning toward gears cause i have 2.73s. I want to get 3.55s, so that and intake are the next two but which do you guys think I should do first?

    Don't buy 3.55's unless you plan to make up the lack of gear with a light weight flywheel or nitrous.

    If you don't I would vote for 3.73 gears since you don't want 3.90s.

    3.90's are an awesome gear ratio, i wouldnt go with 3.55's unless you are goin a turbo setup in the future because obviously turbos like resistance to build boost, or if you like get on the highway and take a long trip kinda car. But if you want a street/strip type setup i would definatly go with the 3.90's

    If you want 3.55's I have some.... But anyway i went 3.55's to my 4.10's and I love em. I like 3.90's cause its good enough to bring your RPMS close, but on the highway it doesnt make you rap as high. 3.55's IMO were too sluggish for a mostely stock car. Even with full bolt ons maybe 3.55's.... If you are gonna push major power or maybe put a SC in her, 3.55 is great.

    I thought the t-5's came with a 3.27...... the Auto's came with a 2.73 The newer gt's have a 3.35 then the mach and cobra have a 3.55 i could be wrong but i am pretty sure thats how it goes.

    no....that not necessarily (sp?) how it goes.


    A 3.73 is a MINIMUM!!!!!

    You will GAIN milage around town with pretty much any gear (include 4.10-4.30).

    WIth a 3.73 on the highway you MIGHT lose a mpg or 2....big deal.

    MINIMUM 3.73. If I were you and running a stockish 5.0 on a 5spead, I'd be going 4.10....shit...I'm about to put them behind my 331.
