    Features & Details

    • Superior Quality
    • CNC-Cut from 8620 Gear Steel
    • 3.73 Gear Ratio
    • 7.5" Ring Gear Diameter
    • For Street or Track Use
    • Fits 1999-2004 V6 Mustangs
    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 Ford Racing Speedometer Recalibration Tool is an inexpensive way to fix this issue.

    Application. This Motive Performance Plus Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1999 to 2004 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.

    Installation note. The Ring and Gear Pinion kit will require a notched cross-pin for proper installation.

    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.

        Do you really need a tune after ?

        • I have 4.10 gears in my gt I drove it for a while before tuning the only major problem is it makes Ur speedometer wrong it says your going faster then you really are, but it is very drivable without a tune

        I'm thinking about getting this for my 03 auto V6 mustang and was wondering what is everthing I need to install this properly?

        • You will need to purchase the Motive Rear End Installation and Bearing Kit Item #21202 ( along with new rear differential fluid. The Ring and Gear Pinion kit will require a notched cross-pin for proper installation, and the speedometer will have to be re-calibrated as well.

        will there's gears fit is a stock rear end or do i have to get a bigger rear end?

        • These new gears will fit in your stock rear without any problems. Installing these will throw off your speedo though, so I recommend getting a new tune to correct for that. Also, it's a great idea to get the installation and bearing kit and the necessary gear oil for a perfect install. Combining these gears with an LSD would be an awesome combo for your V6, putting all your power to the pavement and eliminating those 1 wheel burnouts! Best of luck!

            I installed these gears in my 2003 v6 mustang 5 speed along with an lsd with the help of my father in law. It took a few hours to do and is not the easiest mod to install but not to bad with the right tools and knowledge and definitely worth it all! It really peps up that v6 through every gear. I haven't had them installed long but so far so good. No noise very smooth all around great mod! I have a few more things I'll be doing very soon and we'll see how it all ties in. Very happy with these gears though!

            This product came in fast and looks great, there were no signs of it being used. I bought it for my son's mustang which he is still working on, just waiting for the differential to come in as the first one we bought from eBay was defected so we returned it and then bought another from American muscle! Should be in today! Can't wait to have them put it on to start driving my son's musty again!!

            Major improvement in acceleration. I installed these myself which saves me a lot of money, and it wasnt to hard to install just have to make sure backlash and preload is correct or else they will whine. If your like me and you want hard launches get the 4.10 gears or upgrade the rear end to a 8.8 and get even higher gears. I really like these gears but wished i swapped rear ends and wint with 4.30 gears.

            well worth the money

            I added this to my stang along with a ford racing tlok and a 4 bank elim chip. i must say installing all of it was a process. make sure you get the right backlash in the gears and compound mesh and your set. id get professional help if you dont have the tools. great acceleration and performance. makes GTs jealous now

            Woke the pony up!

            This was a great product. Made my V6 really fly.. Only thing I didn't like is that it didn't come with and spacers or any of the bearings or crush collar that are pretty much mandatory. I wouldn't recommend doing rhis yourself unless you are a very experienced tech with a hoist. Don't count on finishing it in 1 day either. Took 2 buddies and I 2 7 hr. Days with a hoist. Very pleased with the product thus far. Just doin the 500 mile break in.

            More Get Up And Go!!!!

            Bought and had these installed by a professional in my 5 speed 2000 v6 mustang along with the 7.5 28 T-LOK slip differential and felt the difference immediately. A must buy for anyone with a v6 looking for better acceleration and handling, their even better when combined with a custom tune. For those of you who want to buy the gears and the T-LOK and are wondering how much it will cost at a garage to have BOTH installed it will be around $500.00-$600.00 just for installation but worth it.

            Great mod albeit expensive with POSI, bearing kit and a $ 430 prof. installation. It was worth waiting and saving. It really gives a boost to your V6. After long search on Inet, AM provided the best prices for these parts.

            less slow!

            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 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.

            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.

            Worth It, Does The Job

            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.
