    Features & Details

    • CNC-Cut from 8620 Gear Steel
    • For Street or Track Use
    • Superior Quality
    • 3.90 Gear Ratio
    • 8.8" Ring Gear Diameter
    • Fits 1986-2014 V8 and 2011-2014 V6 (Excludes 2013-2014 GT500)


    Improve Overall Performance. Improve your V8-powered Mustang's off-the-line responsiveness with a set of 3.90 gears from Motive. These 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 Ford Racing Speedometer Recalibration Tool (94-10) is an inexpensive way to fix this issue.

    Application. This Motive Performance Plus Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1986 to 2014 V8 Mustangs including GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, Cobra and the 11-14 V6 Mustangs equipped with the 8.8" rear end. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, see drop down option above.

    Attention 2010 and newer Mustang Owners. Starting in 2010 Ford changed the inner rear gear pinion bearing in all 8.8" equipped Mustangs. Because of this you will require a new 8.8" rear gear pinion bearing (Ford part# 9L3Z-4630-A) for proper installation, please 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. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, see drop down option above.

      3.90

      This Brand of Gears is a low quality. Very, very noisy. Not a smooth ride with these gears. Recommendation not to buy these gears.

      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

      crazy..

      The only word to describe these gears is crazy! They gave my '02 GT so much more life. I had a hard time deciding between 373s and 410s, so i just went with these and i am glad i did!

      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 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.
