Description
Improve Performance. Wake up your V6-powered pony for faster acceleration off the line with a set of 3.73 Motive Performance Plus gears. A steeper set of gears will get you into your power band faster for faster launches and more punch off the line. 3.73 Gear Ratio. 3.73 gears are a great combination of performance and fuel economy that's ideal for a daily-driven 'Stang that sees a lot of highway time. If you put a lot of miles on your Pony and don't want to increase your cost at the pump, a 3.73 ratio will still give you the added acceleration you want without compromising fuel economy dramatically.

Superior Construction. These Motive ring and pinon gears are CNC cut from high grade 8620 gear steel, and factory lapped for precision fit. Each set is hardness tested prior to leaving the factory to ensure the highest quality.

Recommended Upgrade. Changing the rear axle gear ratio will throw off the calibration of your Mustangs speedometer, but a new Speedometer Gear is an inexpensive way to fix this issue.

Application. This Motive Performance Plus Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1994 to 1998 V6 Ford Mustangs equipped with a 7.5" rear end. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, see drop down option above.

Technical Note. Installation costs will vary, but a good rule of thumb is between $250 and $300. Be sure to work with a reliable shop that you trust for installations.

I bought 3.73 Gears for my V6, I decided to stay with the 7.5in rear. But I must say, the gears do a VERY noticeable difference in acceleration off the line and in the low-mid RPM range. These gears wont

    97 v6 mustang

    May 07, 2011

    so i asked around to see how easy and just how much someone would charge to install these 3.73 gears on my v6. got a good price, came on-line bought the gears with the bearing kit for a great price you can't beat, i should have bought the recalibration tool because it threw off my speedometer by 15 mph but i will get it soon. this product is great, faster take off, 2nd gear burns out, along with 3rd gear as well, my v6 is coming along, hoping to add the headers and throttle body spacer after the recalibration tool to go along with the full exhaust, cold air intake, under-drive pulleys, and performance chip. love American muscle, keep doing what you do.

    less slow!

    May 29, 2009

    I had to rebuild the rear end of my mustang so I figured I would throw in some lower gears to get some more pep from my slow single port. I am very happy with the result, the acceleration is much better. The down side is that at 65mph im at 2500rpm (5spd). At least it keeps me from getting speeding tickets on the freeway.

    I bought 3.73 Gears for my V6, I decided to stay with the 7.5in rear. But I must say, the gears do a VERY noticeable difference in acceleration off the line and in the low-mid RPM range. These gears wont hurt your MPG either, it will be near stock. Dont waste your money on FRPP gears or others, Motive Performance is an inexpensive and reliable way to go to upgrade gears. Also, gears only whine if the technician doesnt take the time to align them correctly. Definitely recommended though.

    Wow

    July 08, 2008

    I bought these gears along with the installation kit, and Royal Purple fluid. This really woke the car up. I do a lot of highway driving and noticed no change in noise or fuel economy. An SCT tuner will allow you to correct your speedometer and get some extra power at the same time.

    Quick Speed Boost

    April 07, 2012

    I ordered and installed these in my v6 Pony. This is probably one of my favorite mods too. The gears change the power range for the car, giving it very quick acceleration. This will however have your car running at higher RPMs on highway, or higher speeds (60-80mph). You will definitely notice that, but the speed boost is well worth it. I decided to go with the 3.73's since i do a lot of highway driving every day. My car came with 2.73's, so I figured this would give a good boost, without sacrificing too much MPG. Love these gears. Pretty straight up to install. Just be sure to fill the rear end with some good gear oil and a tube of Friction Additive. Royal Purple was my choice. Thanks again American Muscle for another amazing product!

    These gears are exactly what the title says, nasty! All together it was around $750 for the works, however, I do recommend getting a posi-traction differential. My car is a lot more fun to drive now.
