Improve Off The Line Acceleration.
Does your v8 powered S197 Mustang spends its days at the dragstrip clicking off a quarter mile at a time? If so, you should consider upgrading to a set of Richmond Excel 4.56 Ring and Pinion Gears. Featuring a much higher ratio than the factory installed 3.31 or 3.55 gears, these Excel 4.56 Gears are ideal for the serious drag racer who is looking for faster acceleration and quicker 60 foot times. While 4.56 gears can be used on the street, they are really intended for drag race applications.Superior Quality.

Please note that when changing the gear ratio of your Mustangs rear differential that the calibration of your speedometer will no longer be correct and will display the wrong speed. However, you can easily fix this annoying issue with a Ford Racing Speedometer Recalibration Tool
This 4.56 ratio Richmond Excel Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 2005 to 2009 V8 Mustangs equipped with an 8.8" solid axle rear end, including the GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

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.
