That is correct, 3.27 stock. I say go with the 4.10's. I, like everyone else, struggled with this decision and came very close to getting 3.73's, but I am glad I didn't. Highway driving isn't too bad as long as your not going 90 all the time. Plus, you can actually feel 5th gear pulling for once.

Top 5...
1. Gear of choice
2. Mid pipe (catted or off road X)
3. Tuner (excal 2 is most popular right now)
4. subframe connectors (weld in type with cross brace)
5. cat back of choice
I didn't do this stuff in this order, but I wish I had, good luck.

The kit saves a little bit, get the one with the excal 2.

I'll echo dollarbill's list. It's a good solid combination that will net good gains. Once all that is done, I would turn to the Intake to open it up and really put the new exhaust to use.

I think both kits spoke of in this thread come with tuners. http://www.mustangtuning.com/xcal2-4...r-oil-kit.html
