    I would use FRPP or Motive Gears. I have the Motive Gears. I would also get the Diablo Predator tuner and not just a chip. Just get a K&N and save your money for a upper intake and 70mm throttle body. You will get better HP results with This set up rather than a CAI.

    As long as you do not get the Race only gears. I have know several people with those and they **** and **** about them. They are softer than normal gears and they make more noise and dont last as long.

    if your doing your own installation,or having a friend install them,the FRPP gears are the only way to go.ford machine's their pinions to the same dimension,and the shim is used for the differences in housing dimensions.99% of the time you reuse the same pinion shim and it comes out perfect,no need for trail and error or use of special depth setting tools

    My mileage didnt change when I keep my foot out of it.

    Gas engines are the most efficient at their torque peak so the closer you get it to running in that peak the most mileage you will get provided whatever induction system you have is working properly.

    I just run normally first thru fifth.

    With a 4000 foot DA and a 2.0 60' it was a 14.2. The run sucked period. Every time I went WOT in first it spun and it was hazing the tires in second. Thats mostly to do with the hard as tires I have. It corrected to a 13.7 or something like that. My first run with slicks, no nitrous and a chicken **** launch was a 2.0 60' and a 13.5x. The 330' was almost a half second faster.

    Install Price

    Just out of curiosity- what's a normal cost to install 4.10's if you have it done? Im getting 4.10's in my Roush for a Christmas present- but the guys I normally have do all my work is saying it will $600 for labor. That seems high? I know rates are different in various regions of the country- but I any idea would be good.

    FRPP would be the best choice because
    they make those gears as specialy for
    Fords!
