so which dif is which, and which one is best?


for you mate, seeing as your car is an EB, id go a 3.45, cos its a straight swap. you just have to find a diff from the right car to make it as painless as possible, like an ED xr6 or EB if they have a 3.45, or you can do what i did and steal one off a NC fairlane :D


ok, so for this do i just need the centre or the disc to disc? and how will this benefit performance? (im pretty new to diff's) and roughly how much will it cost?

Well, I'd be guessing that at the moment you've got the 3.27.
Going to the 3.45 would give a little bit more jump off the line, but not that noticable.
A shorter diff ratio shortens all your gears.
For example,
With a 3.27 1st may rev out to 40km/h
With the 3.45 it may only go to 35km/h
You can swap centers with your diff, no idea on cost.
Or, a disc to disc is another option, arguably easier to DIY.
A 3.45LSD disc to disc usually costs around the 700 mark second hand.

or you can grab a pretty good buy and get a 3.45 lsd disc to disc, minus calipers for 400 8-)
