Description
Improve Overall Performance. A set of Motive Performance gears will wake up your Pony and get it moving faster off the line. Steeper gears are a great way to lower quarter mile times and improve responsiveness without sacrificing driveability. 3.90 gears are perfect for the Pony that needs more than 3.73s but less than 4.10s, offering a great blend of performance and efficiency.

Superior Construction & Precision Fit. 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. Unlike other brands, Motive Gears do not have a reputation for "gear whine".

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 3.90 Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1994 to 1998 V8 Mustangs including the GT and Cobra models. 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. You can also save money on your installation labor by having your Trac-Lok rebuilt at the same time as your gears are installed, see drop down option above.

Great gear for a 4 valve daily driver!

I have these gears installed on my 98 cobra. I installed them in my shop with new bearing set and new clutch pack. These gears have been very easy to deal with on the highway and pull hard from 1st thru

Great get up and go.

I feel that these are the great in between gears to have. I didn\'t want 3.73\\\'s but I didn\'t want 4.10\\\'s either. You will get a great improvement when you hit the throttle.

    Great gear for a 4 valve daily driver!

    I have these gears installed on my 98 cobra. I installed them in my shop with new bearing set and new clutch pack. These gears have been very easy to deal with on the highway and pull hard from 1st thru 3rd. These gears are very quiet with no vibration issues. A good compromise for those who need a little more than 3.73s.

    better than 4.10s imo

    Went from stock to 4.10s. that lasted about a year. Decided to go down to 3.90s. They are definatly a much more street friendly gear, but still get up and move! 3rd redlines at about 85, and 4th is around 115, so you'll definatly still have plenty of oomph to blow past the slow traffic on the freeway-

    Great gear ratio for blown ponies

    I installed these in my 94 GT that's been changed to a built 351 with a Paxton Novi 2000 blower and intercooler. Went from 11.03 second 126.4 mph 1/4 mile to 9.84 second 138,3 on a small tire daily driver. The price is the cheapest 1 second plus gain that I've ever invested in. Great ratio for the longer rpm range for blown motors. Thanks AM :)

    390

    Had gear professionally installed, greater acceleration and higher rpms, unfortunately the gear whines, would recommend ford racing, but they dont make a 390 so i chose motive because i wanted a 390, ill live w it
