Hey im gonna get a set of 3:73 gears and a Transgo shift kit for my 88 stang, i know stock, it does 0-60 (0-100kph) in 6.2 seconds for a 1988 LX, approximetly what would it be after those two mods? Its completly stock with BBK H-pipe off road, tuned full flowmaster cat back, and removed air silencer?

Thanks!!!:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

gears dont make it go faster, it just makes it feel like its going faster and gets the rpms in the power range quicker

Wouldn't that make it faster since it is in the power faster? Gears will improve your 0-60 times I couldn't tell you what they will be though.

Hard to tell what the 0-60 time would be, there's a lot of variables with that.

I just ordered my 3.73's for my 87 vert. It has 2.73 stock gear, I am anxious to see just how much quicker it will be off the line...

Yes quicker to 60 correct. I think it could be under 6 seconds to 60 my maxima 0-60 time is 6 flat and my stang is a lil bit "quicker"

The gears and the shift kit will both help, the shift kit will allow the transmission to shift faster, giving you more time for speeding up, you also my want to buy a K&N Air Filter, which will help airflow, and convert you car to mass air, if you haven't already

i have 3.73 gears and my 0-60 time is around 5.4-5.7. depending on how quick you are on the clutch.

Are we talkin about 0-60 mph or 60 ft times. When i ran with my 2.73's the best i could do was a 2.2 60ft. After the 3.73's went in my best is now a 1.9 60 ft time. Its all in how you launch it.

Yeah that is pretty good 5.4-5.7 I guess I just wanted to know how you timed it? I mean what did you use to time it? Cause I'm a lil curious what mine would run 0-60 thats all.
