that is what i was thinking. i have talked with ford mechanics who say that 4.10s are hard on your engine and tranny too. i was thinking about 3.73s and getting an Xcaliber tuner. that will be good enough for me.TK421DS said:If your drive is like mine +50 miles I would go with 3:73's or 3:90's.........4:10's are really for the track or short daily drives......
Mine's a daily driver with a few road trips thrown in, so I went with 3.73's. Still sitting in my garage but not for long.pony_xpress said:What is the general consensus on this site for gears???
I post in another mustang forum and they all say 4.10 minumum for a daily driver GT.

i get 22 driving like a granny about 2 driving normal with some gas hitting. and check sig for mods
390s or 373s unless you are a racer .
go with what you want though just use us for advice go with what you personally want.
I have a 97 and the stock gears were 2.73carguy1985 said:um... what year mustang do you have because at least 99-04 has 327 gears not 237.
how are you going to tell me that 410s get better gas milage when especially in city....and revs are really high.
I have 3.73's and the best mileage I have gotten was 23 MPG on a round trip from Sacramento to Reno. Overall, I average 17-20 MPG. (See mods in sig.)qwkstang97 said:mods in sig with 4.10's and I get 27mpg.

Your's is the first one I've heard of that gets as high as 27 MPG with 4.10's, but if true, it sounds like your Stang might be a freak and not representative of the typical Mustang.
If anyone else on here is getting 27 MPG or better with 4.10's, I'd like you to chime in too. Otherwise, if guys out there are thinking they will also get 27 MPG with 4.10's as a daily driver, they will be in for a major disappointment.
Not intending to flame you qwkstang97. Just don't want others to be mis-led by your good fortune.
Sorry about that, but you also said at bone stock you got 29 MPG. Not many Mustangs I know get that. That's why I wondered if it was something about your particular car (good fortune).qwkstang97 said:Its not misleading at all.
Notice in my second post I said something about tuning.

Could you expand on "tuning"? Are you talking about burning a custom chip? Or are you talking about a dyno-tune with adjustments to A-F ratio? Cuz if you can get 27 MPG with 4.10's, I should at least be able to match that with my 3.73's. Yes?
