Default which gears 410s or 373s

i have an 07 gt mustang fuel mileage is an issue but on the other hand it doesn't get driven a lot eg; 12,000 miles in 5 years but still i have to get sensor to intercede to fix the differentiation in the miles per hour.best bang for the buck in racing trim, 73s or 10s. Retiring soon so i still want my cake and eat it too. thanks

I usually don't recommend 4.10s but if you are driving less than 3,000 miles a year, then I say go for it!

For a daily driver that sees some highway miles, I would suggest 3.73s.

You guys don't feel 4.10s are too much for highway driving (70-80mph). What kind of RPM are you running at 75mph in 5th?

Even for the freeway, 4.10's are just fine. I think my 08 GT was turning over like 2300 rpms at 70 or so. I can't remember but it wasn't an issue. Still got about the same MPG. It's so much easier to get up to speed and makes the car feel "lighter."

Best. Mod. Ever.
