Question Low gears for EFXR8 Wanted

Can anyone tell me what the lowest available diff gears are availble for EF XR8. I understand they have 3:45 (Mines a Manual)at the moment but was wanting either some 3:9 or 4:11.

I understand Ford probably never made these so where do we go about getting lower gears from? or better still if anyone has any let me know.

And I saw the new barra this week, Turbo Six in Phantom Purple,
Very nice. Bring on the V8 though.

Thanks

You can get 3.7, 3.91, 4.11. A speedo gear is available for 3.7, beyond that you will need an electronic corrector box.

These ratios are available in a Nissan Pintara, which used the same B/W diff. You will only need the crownwheel and pinion.

6speedxr8-> Are you sure about the speedo drive being available for a 3.7:1? I didn't know and that was the only reason why I was going to go to 3.45:1.
If a drive is available for the 3.7, Woohoo, 3.7 it is. :D

Your current diff would be a 3.27 ratio, it wasnt until the ELII that the manual 8s got 3.45. (other than the Sprint)

The VL standard auto non trb has 3.45.
R31 Skyline auto has 3.9, and manuals have 3.7.

The gears are dirt cheap from wreckers, just have to get them onto a carrier for your diff.

All I'm gonna tell you is that with 3.7, 3.9, or 4.11, your gonna have a hard time getting the thing off the line... should be good fun mate

I dont no the cost on its own. It was just in the price for my gears, and install. S.A Race did the work.
