Nice track upgrade features

Simple bolt up to rear, I had dealership do it when they serviced the rear. Other wise can be installed by yourself with a socket and gear oil (dont forget the ford rear friction reducer!). It is setup

    Nice track upgrade features

    September 22, 2013

    Simple bolt up to rear, I had dealership do it when they serviced the rear. Other wise can be installed by yourself with a socket and gear oil (dont forget the ford rear friction reducer!). It is setup if doing track runs to upgrade to a rear differential cooler at a later time. I like it as holds more fluid then stock GT cover. Also has cooling fins so you know fluid will stay cooler to help rear end parts to have a longer life.

    This product is better than stock!!!

    March 24, 2014

    It has the fittings to run a diff cooler. I will be installing it at a later date. I bought the entire 8.8 diff for my 07 GT. I LOVE THE WHOLE SET UP!!! For me it was like flipping a switch. Also the diff cover looks great.... Way better than stock!!!!

    A great finishing touch to any rear end rebuild!

    January 24, 2014

    You can't go wrong with Ford Racing quality and fitment. This differential cover is a great looking and functional upgrade to add to a gear swap project. The finned design will help dissipate heat for better gear life and the fill/drain plugs will allow for easier gear oil changes in the future. If you're spending the time and money to swap your gears go ahead and swap out the stock diff cover too, it's worth it for the looks alone. I’m very happy that I picked one up when I went to 4.10 gears.

    Great fit, quality product

    August 26, 2013

    Purchased this as it was time to change the rear axle fluid on my 2008 Bullitt (60k miles, very dirty fluid). I figured I would change out the cover to make future changes easier, as the standard cover does not have a drain plug. The cover is made very well, and has magnetic bolts on the "fill" and "drain" plugs. They are not exactly meant for Fill and drain, I think they are more meant for the optional GT-500 diff cooler, but they could work as such. The supplied hardware fit perfect, and had some loctite reapplied. One note about the install, the panhard bar did have to be removed to fit the cover on. I would suggest taking out the panhard bar first thing, it will give you more room to work during the rest of the process. the stock panhard bar will fit back in place once the cover is on with plenty of room, but it had to be removed first. not a big deal as it takes very little time. All in all pleased, and if the fins do help cooling thats just an added bonus.

    Cools the Fluid and Looks Great

    August 22, 2014

    I installed this Finned Rear Diff Cover, along with a New Diff. Installation went as smooth as silk. Everything I needed was in the box. Before I installed the Diff I did a temperature check. After installation there was a noticeable drop in the Syn Oil temperature. I would highly recommend this product.
