no im not after drugs, ive got a ba xr6 its fitted with a slip diff, i want to track down a LSD.
what should i be looking for as in the whole diff or just the center. also if i source one from a xr6t, is the gear ratio different and if so is it geared more to acceleration or high speed.
thanks


All XR6s ever from my knowledge came with an LSD so why it has a single pegga is pretty strange to me.
You might as well try ebay, a wreckers or pay a drive line guy to source a center and fit it


BA XR6 onwards are single.

AU XR6 HP started the single, NOT BA.


My apology, I stand corrected.

Yeah also remember in what way is the ba on xr6 a sport model anymore??? same motor as an xt, no tweaking same diff etc. the xr6 are just tarted up xt, the only reason xt sold were wagons and fleet use and even then.
You could nearly even claim rice to be honest.

I think the only thing that isn't just looks and interior comfort is slightly lower springs.

doesn't even get a big mouth snorkel lik ef/el xr's got or the turbo variants.

XR6 means nothing anymore.

Well someone said they were 3.7 so more acceleration of course but higher revs at 100 -fuel economy .

3.46 or 3.73. Also, you need: Tailshaft, axles, hubs, and possibly cradle. Just get an LSD put in the M78!

so is their anyway i can do this cheaply, like take of old diff and get one from a xr6t and bolt it straight up, i would like quicker acceleration off the mark, and im not gonna be fanging the car so hard its gonna blow the diff, however some times my standard diff feels a bit funny, (auto drops down gear, engine revs but doesnt really give a kick, almost as if the cars being held back)

Your mate is an idiot. It has nothing to do with the Auto.

If your XR6 is NA it will be fitted with a single spinner, if it is a XR6T then it will have the better LSD.

To check if it is a Limited Slip Diff put the rear up on a jack so both wheels are off the ground and spin one wheel. If the opposite wheel turns in the same direction, it is a LSD, if the opposite wheel turns in the other direction then it is a single pegger.

If it is a LSD and only spins one wheel then the LSD needs to be overhauled.
