Sorry dude, but that is totally wrong.

The 2011+ Mustang V6 has plenty of power to top 150.

With an automatic though, the better mod than 3.73's would have been a high stall torque converter, then the 2.73's would allow top speed in third gear.

To the OP, what tune are you using to adjust for the 3.73's???
