    just bought my first cobra and i love it ,i can't wait to drive it every day. I work for Ford and needed a daily driver.It has long tube bbks,h,and american thunders. Undersize pullies. I have to drive 80 miles a day.. some one suggested 373s ,what will that do to the gas milage..and what else can I do to it that will only effect the gas if I get on it...which I love to do, should I lower it and how much and with what ?

    I just wanted to say Congratulations on a Wise Choice!!! Its nice to see the Chevy guys cross over once in a while...

    I have 3.73 in my 01 GT and I drive about 70-80 miles a day to work/school and back. I get 22 Miles to the gallon on a regular basis. I drive mostly highways, but I usually get stuck in stop and go traffic too and from work.

    Hope that helps!

    You will be really happy with 3.73's in your Cobra. I was with my 94 Cobra before my buddy totaled it. You will get the most out of your mods with that gear. Also, your mileage wont suffer enough to **** you off. You may notice a little difference but the extra seat-of your-pants acceleration you will feel will negate the mileage thing.

    Congrats on your purchase. :nice:
