Community Q&A Question: 1990 LX 5.0

Asking About: Mustang Ford Racing 3.73 Gears Kit for 8.8" Rear End (86-09)


1990 LX 5.0

On my 5.0 w 2,73 gear has ability to reach the top speed with almost 4900 rpm, so if i change it to 3.73 is it possible to reach the top speed or it will be harder cuz of the high rpm. i know it will launch quick w 3.73 but am i going to notice a really really big deference between these two gears ??

I changed the 3.27 gears in mine to 3.73 and had a 400 rpm difference. A friend of mine had 2.73 gears and went with 3.73 gears and had a 600 rpm difference, so I would imagine your top speed rpm would be around 5400 rpm, It should reach top speed a lot quicker and easier with the 3.73 gears and you should notice a big difference. Hope this helps.
