Looking for people that went from 3.55 to 3.73 gears on their 05-07 GT 5spd..... Is it worth it?

I don't think it would make that big of a difference. When I ordered my Mustang I decided that I wasn't going to change out the rear end so I got the 3.55's instead of the standard 3.31's.

yeah, so did I...lol...my 4.10s should go in tonight (jinx!)...OP, 4.10s are the pretty much the standard for the MTs and 3.73s for the autos...unless you plan on going FI anytime soon...hell you could probably get pretty close to 3.73 from 3.55 by going with a slightly shorter rear tire...

Do go with the 4.10's.
We did 3.73 on our SEMA car and although there is a difference, it's not as great as the 4.10's.

I didn't notice until just now that you're spraying...I hope you don't run out of gear (I guess not unless you're spraying mega...looks like maybe a 50-75 shot by your 1320)...

I'm spraying 75 shot, but only after I go into 2nd gear. hopefully 4.10's will help me into the 12's. my 60ft time sucks ! 2.2-2.3. booooo
