Looking good there Dan, what made you go for the 4.7 diff ?

Hey Moray
I’d had a original S80 4.7FD box in my first EK9 and what a difference it made so it was high on my list when I got this car.
took a while for a fresh one to come up so when it did I jumped at it. This box has the added bonus of the EK9 S4C forth and fifth gear so it’s actually and upgrade on a standard S80

I think out of everything that’s changed on my car this mod has made the most difference

I have heard that before about gearbox ratios. What sort of revs you doing at 70 in 5th.

I did the same put teg fd with teg 1st/3rd i think it was, along with mfactory lightened flywheel did make a lot of difference... Good mod without making the ratios too extreme for road/track use

Thanks, that would be great.
4350rpm @70mph in 5th gear... this is with 205/50/16 tyres

That’s exactly my thoughts mate, I think a 4.9FD or/and a close ratio kit would be slight overkill for a street driven motor

Yeah I think I also had an ac stage 1 clutch but can't find my build thread to confirm it... Was a long time ago now

We update
Sold the Ce28‘a so back on standard rims for now, even though I loved the Volks the car still looks ace on the OEM‘s in my opinion

also had the pleasure of helping my friend detail another EK9 today, pre facelift, totally standard.
The owner of the car is the daughter of a member from here and used to be his car @McJazz
