Questions

i had a 1992 lx 5.0 with tremeec 5 speed and 4.10 gears. my top speed was around 125-130 range. 4.10 are made for take off and not top end. personally id go with 3.55 gears if u drive it everyday. as far as value ive seen them go in good condition from 3500 to 6500 with alot of mods

I hope that's your summer car, with 4.10s you will be doing the Mustang skate on anything but dry pavement...even then those old 5.0 cars can be downright scary with their torque and lack of suspension.

IMO, 3.73's are the best on the street. You'll run about 2100 rpm at 65-70.
