2011+ Rear End Gear

I am swapping my stock 3.15 gear for a 3.73 but the question is which brand should I go with? I have had good luck with Ford Racing in the past but have heard it may not be the best solution for these newer mustangs. I have read horror stories about them blowing out and causing other issues. Thoughts, concerns?

I went ahead and ordered the Ford Racing gears after talking to some of my local drag guys. Still would like to hear pros / cons and feedback. Thanks!

I have done about the same as you. I put in 373 ford racing gears, steeda cai outlaw flowmaster series axleback exhaust with tune. It made a big difference. Do you know or anyone else about what the rear wheel hp and torque would be on this. Thanks

Should be right around 390-400 whp depending on the tune and how good it is. Hope that answers it for ya!

Thanks, want to have a dyno done and see what it is. But that sounds about right.

Yeah and what is even more crazy I dyno'd 350whp on a loaded dyno before the tune. I am sitting on 396whp now.
