[quote=Plumbago;4415649That aside, there is a lot of difference between a 2.73 and a 3.73 ratio, and you are bound to have "some" built in gear noise with the different ratio....It just has to be. Regardless of who says not, its a fact... [/quote]

I agree with this as well. Once you get to the 3.73 and above ratios, I too believe that the gears produce more noise in general. Not necessarily whine, howl, or whatever you want to call it, just louder normal operating noise.


Mustang base coupe, V6, manual transmission, Red Candy tint, performance package.

Upgrades: DSS aluminum driveshaft, BMR LCA's, Yukon 3.73 gears, MGW shifter.

Displaying 3.7 fender badges is like telling everyone your wife is "office hot."
