I did a ratio equation (it probably isnt correct) to see the torque change from 2.73 to 3.73 gears (I have 3.73). (215 lb ft)/(2.73)=("X" lb ft)/(3.73). "X" therefore equals 293.7 lb ft. Could this be possible? Could putting 3.73 gears boost the torque to GT levels? Of course this would mean HP at a given RPM went down. It might be though, because my accelleration is the same now as my friends (a cop) 94 GT but I dont have nearly the top speed.
So just substitute in the 3.27 for the 2.73. the stock ratio for 94-98 is 2.73. Youd also have to sub in the stock torque from 215 to 220. I did the calculations for my 98 stang. The 99+ will have a little more torque in the end, but just a very little.
me again. How much did it run you to put the gears in? Or did you do it yourself? Does it take long? My mechanic buddy said that its better to have a performance shop do it, cos theres a lot involved. does it take long in the shop?
thanks in advance!
jeez my gears are $180 but im gunna do it with a friend(well figure it out) figured itll take about 4-5hrs. not sure which ones to get yet though(gunna race 1/4mi) but it wont boost hp itll just make tires spin faster Good Luck
