    I dont know, I dont think I want to go higher then 3.90s thats alot of stress on the motor every day in addition to the gas, I am constantly driving in the 70-80 MPH range. Thats alot of revs every day to work. its almost 30 miles round trip daily. :shrug:

    with 3.90's at 80mph you will be at 2700rpm, 70mph at 2394 rpm. this is a link to the RPM calculator.It even gives you the option to check which tranny you have.

    Ok those numbers are acceptable to me. I think the 3.90s would be the way to go for me.

    As a side question, did my cobra come stock with sub-frames? I wasnt aware that they did but mine has them.
