    Yes this helps, allot . I really enjoy my 302 as it is even with the 2.78 gears. I am torn between putting in some 3.55 gears $300 install. Or buying a new pumpkin with Posi and 3.8 gears for $600. I dont have Overdrive yet but I pln on getting it. I also dont know if I will really NEEEED a...

    ok then lets go with it......So for all of you nay sayers. I am assuming you all have inline 6's or 289's. What is the purpose of stroking motors or upgrading to performance parts if not to go faster

    So yea, I think that some people must be intentionally trying to hijack the thread. PLEASE READ THE ORIGINAL POST. This is trying to get clarificationfor us Noobs. So with that being said. I am now thinking I should just stay with my 302. I was considering building up a 408 but I think the right...

    I have been hearing both sides, " 3.80 with no AOD will suck on the highway".... "3.80 is not much more than a 3.55 so it wont be that bad" " Go 3.80 and have fun the bigger the better" I thought I had this whole gearing thing figured out, but now Im just back at square one.

    No gas mileage is not really a concern, the car will be driven at most once a week on sundays, maybe twice in the summers. Right now I am looking at installing some 3.80 gears. I was considering 3.55 but I just found a great deal on a pumpkin with posi and 3.8 gears

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    The original point of this post was to differentiate the two quick vs. fast. Like I said I dont need to go 140 mph. I rode 130 on my motorcycle scary as hell. When I wasa younger i had a nissan 240 and got it up to 95 and it was scary as hell. After all of the research tht I have done, Top end...

    Hey fellow VMFers, I came to me last night that there is a big difference between these two terms. Us newbies come on here asking how to make our cars faster and we usually get these elaborate stroker stories or upgrade suggestions but that isnt what us newbies are really after, we just dont...

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    20 posts and I am still no closer to a decision. Even the people who say go with the 3.55's say the 3.8 is also is a good choice lol.

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I have 17 inch tires 235/45/17 not sure if thtats like 25 or 26 inches. I do Live in LA but im not part of any car club or cruise night. So the general consensus is stick with the 3.55's It just seemed like a sweet deal its $300 to get the 3.55's installed in the pumpkin or $600 to buy a...
  17. 3.8 rear gears input

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Why do you say that, is it because of the higher RPM's. I guess my justification would be its mostly street driven and if i get annoyed, I will be forced to get the AOD sooner rather than later. DARN.... I have to buy more parts for more car >:)>:)>:)

    Ok everyone, School is back in session ready to learn some more stuff. So here is my question. From My understanding the cowl vents on the 67 coupe are designed to allow fresh air to flow into the car. Question 1: How do you stop water from getting into the car through the cowl vents: other...

    I know that he is on here quite often i was actually hoping he would see this post. Its funny how the tides turn the first couple of responses made me feel like this was an isolated incident. I think the advice to switch to a 1 inch sway bar is good advice. Right now I am just riding around...
