EF wagon, with XR 3.45 LSD, 4 speed auto, 17" wheels with 235/45R17 tyres. Which speedo gear do I want? Black-23 (XE17271F)?
I looked at the Technical Document (http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=30), but I don't know the cars original specs.

i think you need the xr6 one GREY 22
just go with diff type
tyre size doesn't matter that much but you can get a speedo calibrater from jaycar if you want it spot on

Spot on doesn't worry me, just closer than what it is at the moment, the car would of had skinny 15's from factory and a 3.08SS I think, so quiet a change...

Drivers door should have a sticker with the factory tyre specs. Old diff ratio would have been on a tag on the old diff.

Black one is specially for 3.45 diff with 16" tyres.

Grey is for 3.45 diff with 15" or 17" rubber.

Lukcy mine has 17"'s so grey-22 for me. Went to Tilford (local Ford dealer) today and he had sold the two he keeps in stock to a taxi, but had ordered more, so is putting one aside for me when it gets in tomorrow afternoon.
