Hey! I am trying to decide what gear ratio I should use in my Mk4. I'll be using a 4-link solid axel rear end and a 4.6 DOHC motor out of a '99 Cobra Mustang. What gear ratio will really wake up this engine? I'm looking for low end power, not so much top speed. (The stock ratio in the donor car is 3.27). Thanks for your input!

I'm running 3:73 and love it. I get 24 MPG. Mine is still pulling at high speed.

I'm running a 3.55 and find the low end could be a bit stronger, and on the highway it still wants to bog down in 5th unless I'm over 65 mph. The 3.73 is probably a better choice for this car and engine combo.

I totally agree I have a 3.50 and feel the 3.73 would be better suited all around
