i got my ford racing 3.73 gears yesterday from latemodel resto. cant wait for the weather to break to take the gt over to my mechanic and get um installed! its snowing here as i write this! they should wake the car up pretty good compared to the stock 3.31 in my car now! they came with a installation kit with new bearings and all the stuff needed to put them in and gear oil, and friction modifyer. now if only spring would come!!

I feel your pain man my ford racing 4.10's have been sitting in my garage for a week now and probably another month before my car will see the road.

Biggest thing is the two heat cycles. Drive it for two short trips (15-20 min) each followed by a complete cooldown.

You have to change the Diff fluid after the two break in drives?

i like to change oil after a short breakin, like stlwagon says 500 miles. it gets rid of any small metal particles that may have been on the new parts and worn off as they break in. oil is cheap compared to gears!
