Porsche Crest What Low Ratio Diff's Avail For 79 930 4 Spd?

All,

I am looking into low ratio diff's for a 79 930 4 Spd.
I understand there was a popular one back in the 80's.
It made the top speed drop from 165 to 145mph or so.
It also made 2nd gear more useful at street corners
I would not mind a ratio low enough to bring the top speed down to 135mph or so.
What do these cost?.
Does anyone have a good one in their garage.

Thanks,

Paul

Andial use to make a 8:39 but is nla. There are a few other companies making them. I bought a new Andial one for $1450 last year and occasionally see used ones around $1000 and up.

I thought the 8:31 was supposed to be real popular back then.

BTW.. Congrats on the Excellence article! Nice write-up and the car looks hot!

I've been running the Andial 8:39 for 5 years now and think they also had an 8:41.

The factory 4-speed at 6500 rpm in 4th gear is good for 189mph if you have the HP. With the 8:39 R&P it drops to 164mph.

You might consider changing the gear ratios rather than the diff. This runs around $750/gear. I lowered the 1st/2nd/3rd gear ratios around 20% and it made a big difference. I left 4th alone to have a highway cruising gear.
