Improve Off The Line Acceleration.
Does our V8 powered SN95 Mustang feel a little slow or sluggish from a standing start? If the answer is yes, it is probably because of the lower ratio gear and pinion installed by Ford at the factory. Most 1994-1998 Mustangs came equipped with either 3.08 or 3.27 gears, which work perfectly fine for daily drivers who are looking for good fuel economy, but not for the hardcore performance enthusiast. By upgrading to a set of higher ratio 3.90 Richmond Excel Gears your Mustang will enter its power band sooner which will help improve low end torque for quicker off the line acceleration.Superior Quality.
