Yeah i have 4.56 Gears




































In my lifted F-150 4x4 running 35" Tires and there to much gear on the freeway. I cannot even imagine them in the Mustang. Especially if you drive on the freeway at a average speed of 80-85MPH

I "sorta" had 4.30s (4.10s + a 40 series DR in place of the factory 55 series tire comes pretty close if not dead on to 4.30)...80mph in fifth was 2750rpms, not too bad, and I had enough left over infourth gear by my estimation for a 75 shot, although I guess anything more or s/c or turbo would be out...

p.s. ohnoesaz, that was friggin hilarious...almost makes up for the whole red loctite thing LOL!

someone on here with a yellow stang just got 4.56's. haven't heard from him since he decided to make the switch. i can imagine it's, well..................an interesting experience.
That about answers it for me.....



I am said guy. I had 4.30s for over two years of daily driving.
-80mph in 5th gear is approximately 3100rpm
-23mpg on the highway at 65mph in CC
-12mpg city driving normal
-cross 1/4 traps exactly at 6000rpm in 4th gear
-4th becomes a monstrous gear, and goes until about 120mph
-5th theoretically goes to about 180mph at about 6500rpm


I now have 4.56 gears. I can't give you nearly as much detail on them, because they were just installed, and I no longer drive it daily. I can tell you that it is completely streetable, and I expect 200miles per 14.5gallon tank fillup with normal driving.

1st = 35mph
2nd = 62mph. My 0-60 is about 4seconds flat w/only one shift.
3rd = 95mph as well. These are with a raised rev-limit.

I plan to run a 75shot at the track with 4.56 gears, but will get cammed before doing that.

4.30s are the best modification for the dollar for the manual tranny.

Sleeper05, thanks for the specifics about your daily driving with the 4.30s, it is very helpful. I am looking into a six-speed and might put together a sort of 'hybrid' transmission but am still thinking about which transmission gears to use with the 4.30/4.56 differential.

I have 4.30 gears, longtube headers (no cats), comp cams; this setup is awesome. The acceleration is quick and intimidating...Joe
