    On a side note, how do the coyote 5.0 stage 2 blower cams sound?

    The crank snout has one key way to hold the damper from turning on the snout. On some high boost setups, they recommend two key ways to make sure it doesn't brake the single key. The damper needs to have the second key way.

    Factory '07-'14 GT500 rear axle ratio was 3.31 except the '08-'09 GT500KR and the Performance Pack which had the 3.73's and I think that package was only available on '11-'14 models.

    see if the XL can come with a .5 6th gear, save some highway RPM

    also, ask if they give a cash discount, can't hurt, I always ask, 50/50 on getting some savings.

    Were the 3.55's standard or optional for the 2011 non SVTPP?

    Something I was just thinking about is your Torque, You are just about on the limit of the standard T56 magnum of 700 lb. You can get one rated for I believe closer to 1000lb. It might be a something to think about.

    I just had JPC do the Magnum and 4.10s in December. Great shop.

    No one is perfect, but Justin stands behind everything they do.

    LOL, I guess if you were getting a reliable 1200 HP, that’s a good price.

    Yes, tongue and cheek.

    That’s a ridiculous price.

    I've got 3:90's with at 28" tire (305,40,18 DR) with a 2200sl, on a built motor. The actual effective gear on with this tire is somewhere around 3:76- 3:80.( depending on which calculator you use). It seems to be a good all round set of gears for this tire. I would only change to 4:11 if I was running a 15" tire with a tall sidewall. But for how my car produces boost (higher up in the RPM) I like this setup... for now.
