My car is a daily driver, and I don't want to lose my top end completely. I also want to have a first gear. So I almost feel like it is between 3.55 or 3.73. I usually drive in town and highway; I don't get much interstate driving.
I got 4.10s for my 7 day a week dd. I regret it. I wish I got 4.30s. Don't fear the gear. I didn't notice a fuel mileage drop city or highway. First gear is also not useless, I use it everyday. Cars a freakin rocket in first. Have traction problems? upgrade your suspension. My opinion go big or go home. It's not worth swapping gears if your not making a big jump. Hell I even have a t45 and I'm fine with it. I plan on getting a 3650 with the .62 of gear and it will drop the rpm back down a bit. Oh and get the cobra clutch packs too, they're awesome.
I have a 2007 mustang gt/cs. I have put on a steeda cold air intake, tuner, and i was wondering what gears to get. I drive it at least 3 times a week, unless there is bad weather. I also have 20 inch wheels. So the question is 3.73's or 4.10's?
