Tuner to adjust my speedometer with 3.55 gears installed

I will go find a shop to take out the stock 2.73 gears and install a set of 3.55 gears. What kind of tuner should I buy to adjust the ECU, so that my speedometer will read correctly?

Thanks.

Simple - Call American Muscle and get one of their tuners.
You'll get 3 tunes and tune for life. Check out americanmuscle.com and start searching. That's where a lot of us started regardless of what we are running now.

Thanks for the advice.

So the tuners are not something I can buy off Ebay?

You can, just make sure the tuner is not locked to the original owners car. You then need to contact a tuning company (Bama, MPT, etc.) to purchase a tune to adjust the speedometer for the gears and any other mods you have done to the engine.

I wouldn't buy the tuner off of Ebay.
Three reasons

1. The unknown, we don't know if it works, if it's locked, and what tunes come with it, they may not work with your car.
2. You buy it off ebay you don't get free tunes for life that American Muscle offers.
3. If you buy off of ebay, your are going to spend 75$+ just to get another tune for your car anyways from a respectable tuner.

AM offers the best starter tunes for the mustang out of the box that I have seen. A lot of us once we modify more may switch to another vendor, but it's where you can start and then you can continue to ask for new tunes if you don't like the ones you have.
