Well when you change the diff gears, what happens, or what used to happen in all the cars i had, from VN SS, VS SS, VS Senator, FOrd Eb and EF XR8, whenever i changed the diff gears, the speedo would read arouind 120km.h and id be doing only 100km/h
From what I am lead to believe, there are currently no 3.7:1 diff gears available for the new Dana diff as used in the BA XR8. The speedo is read as an average of the speed of all 4 ABS sensors in the vehicle. So if gears become available, speedo is not an issue.
Does anyone have a spare BA XR6T ute they want to give me
just get the 3.45 gear set out of the T3 and the speedo drive for a T3 all ford spare over the counter and your speedo will read spot on the car will be a lot snapperer off the line and through the gears might even be as qwick as a T3 ...hope this helps

Wouldn't you love to say that about your car?You loosers
I have a Pursuit with the 3.23 diff. I am chasing a conversion and to date the only available gears are the 3.45. This involves changing the diff gears, however you will also need to download the matching ECU program for your engine/trans combo with that diff ratio.
So, in my case I will have a manual Boss 290 with 3.45 gears. I need to download the ECU program for the GT manual.
I created a thread in the FPV area on gearing and giving speeds per 1000 rpm etc. Go have a look - I agree that 3.7 looks ideal.

Yep thats right AP you will have to download the correct program as the BA does not have a speedo sender unit, it picks up pulses from the ABS sensors and equates the speed and sends it to the instrument cluster.
