Thumbs up 4.10......

No way anyone can answer that adequately without knowing how you use your Stang... DD? Track? MotorX?

I want to do this upgrade too. the acceleration is amazing. i am just waiting to get the install money so i can do this. if you plan on staying n/a then the 4.10's will be great. some on here have gotten blown and said the 4.10's were a little much. some have stayed with them. and love them. all depends on what your future plans are.
sorry to post since i dont have them but i have done a lot of research about getting them. also have to watch the whine you could get after they are installed. just need to find someone who has set up gears for the ford 8' rear end.

I don't drive the car everyday, just a pleasure car, usually on the weekends, I dont think that I will SuperCharge, not anytime soon for sure, just going to do all the bolt on's, I just don't want to do a small jump for the price then regret it, or a big jump and regret it too. I got til Weds to decide so we'll see.... Damn I'm stuck.

I have 4.10s and my car is my D/D. I drive around 80-85 miles per. day 5 days per week. Don't worry about gas mileage or being too noisy with the 4.10s. If you plan on going s/c, then stick to low boost like Bruce ,but if you get a higher boost, say around 8-9 then you might need use something like M&H drag radials as your d/d or 4.10s and a centri s/c would work.

I wanted to put the 4:10's into mine but the price from Ford to install them was ridiculous so I gave up... I've since found a family member who could do them for half the cost, if not almost for free but my long turn goal is a S/C and I've heard that in a manual with 4:10s and a S/C its a little to much on the rear tires so I may just go with the 3:73s instead....

I got quoted:

$190 for FRPP 4.10's (American Muscle)
$85 bearing kit (from shop)
$35 royal purple gear oil (from shop)
$400 installation charge (evolution performance, Aston, PA)

PLUS

$300+ on a tuner to change the gear ratios as Evolution Performance "is unable to perform that service without a handheld tuner"

$1000+ for gears? Needless to say, I'm holding off...

If you can find a better price, do it.

well most people already have a tuner before they do the gears,,,,the 400 is a little high. Call tillman speed and see what they quote you.

I just installed 4.10s in my 08 GT manual and I have no complaints. The jump is so much that you'll spin the tires every takeoff but it's enough of a jump to have a blast in when you want. I know the first time I stepped on it after my install I threw my head back into the headrest. Was awesome. Hope I could help.

$400 is a little steep. The top shops here in San Diego are charging around $300.

Right. I'm hoping to make a supercharger the first real mod on my car. Spring/summer of '09. The tuner will come with a Brenspeed Saleen package.

I thought $400 was a little high. I'd guess Evolution Performance has somewhat of a gear install monopoly on the region. I have no idea.

To the OP, if this is your first "engine" mod, make sure you have at least $1000 budgeted for a gear install just in case things go wrong. I've heard on these forums and from various Mustang aficionado friends that (4.10) gears are one of the most dramatic improvements you can make to a stock (N/A) engine.

I have been doing a lot of research on the 4.10's also and i finally said screw highway and just do it. Now i need my funds that were spent in christmas.
However, I would have to STRONGLY advice you to get a cold air intake / tuner combo first. You can find a used one here on the forums for around 400-450$ and it will add easily 25-30 hp at the wheels. Not to mention the tuner can change other things on the cars computer such as throttle lag and the rev limiter. It was my first mod and the best one for sure.

I upgraded from 3.31 to 4.10 last year.

The added acceleration is nice.

As always, don't judge their performance based on the first 5 minutes of driving after a cold start. Our cars drive crappy then because of the computer loopiness.

I can't really comment accurately on the loss in mpg since I have a short commute to work, but I feel as if I've lost about 3 or 4 mpg with the 4.10's. However,....I am getting on it more now that I have the 4.10's, so that's not mpg-friendly.

If I had it to do over again, I'd probably go with 3.73 just because of the highway rpms. I run about 2500 rpm at 70 mph in 5th gear with stock tire height. With 3.31's, it was 1950 rpm.

Something else to consider. I was reading an article last night in the new motortrend that has a quick run down of the 2010 mustang and how they've basically taken the 08 bullitt mods and made it factory on the 2010 GT. The only thing they didn't take were the gears (2010 will still sport 3.31 with 3.73 optional) and the rims (2010 was using 19 vs the 18 on the bullit)

Bullitt was 0.2 quicker 0-60 mph and held that in the 1/4 mile but had a 1mph slower trap than the S197. Meaning, eventually the gear would work against you. 3.73 vs 4.10 I'm assuming you may be 0.1 faster than a stock bullit but probably trap a mph lower than the bullitt. Just throwing out some food for thought.

I've had the 4.10's on my manual 05 GT for almost 2 yrs now. Best mod I've done that doesn't fall in the suspension category.
