Question are 4.10 gears bad for the engine that has a lot of miles on a 1994 mustang gt

Im not sure how many miles my car has because when i got the car the odometer had stopped at 120,000
It also has a manual transmission
I mainly drive in town but everynow and then i use the highway on trips to other towns
Would the 4.10 decrease the engines life or should i get some 3.75 or lower?

That is a good question IMO I would say stay away from it. It is a known fact modern day Transmissions have help increase engine life by not running them so high in RPM's while driving down the highway with their classic 4-spd's. 4.10's will be a strain possibly even with your 5-spd. I am not sure what your RPM's will read while going 70-80 mph but I do know I would not recommend it. (3.75 would be a better choice, but will still kill gas mileage on the highway, but not as much a strain on the engine.)
