I will never understand why Ford doesn't make 3.73s an option in the V6. The gears are right there. If Ford is after fuel mileage, my Perf Pac car with the 19" Summer Onlys, will do 32 mpg if I go slow (speed limit) and easy.

Don't the "Powers that Be" at Ford, ever read internet forums?
The gears are very nice, and they are worth what I paid for them for sure. The 2.73's are just not bearable. I'd rather have smooth and powerful acceleration with a faint whine that can barely be heard over regular road noise, than have to deal one more day with 2.73 gears.

Current Mods: 19x8.5 Charcoal AMR Rims, Bama Tune 93H, Airaid CAI, FRPP Sport Axle Backs, FRPP 3.73 gears, Boss/CS/GT500 Rear Diffuser, GT500 Rear Spoiler, GT500 Mud Guards, Raxiom Reverse/License LED Lights, OEM Take off Black Charcoal Leather, GT500 Steering Wheel, Auto Headlights, Chrome 3.7 Badges, Quarter Window Louvers, Dark Matter Tint

Future Mods: Matte black GT500 Stripe, Black Billet Grilles, Stillen Front Chin Spoiler, Roush Side Splitters, Painted Mirror Caps
