I got mine installed by my mechanic, did it for nothing ( mates rates :D ), what happens is you have a larger pully on the crank shaft and smaller ones on water pump and alternator. what it does is reduce the power lost from driving the alt and water pump, thus giving you more useable HP. very impressive bang for your buck increase.

Easiest way to check is to jack up the a*** end and spin the drive wheel with your hand, if both wheels go same direction then its an LSD, if not then no LSD. As i said earlier if this is the case go to your local ford wreckers and pick up a complete assemble from an EL XR6

You got that right, try going forward and back. and we all learn slowly lol, been working on ford v8's since i was about 10 and i still know bugger all. Driveline, stereo and interior i can handle. EFI and ECU no bloody idea lol

Happy to help, plenty of guys on here have helped me so far and i believe in paying it forward :D

Oops, that wasnt meant to have "the" in it. it was meant to say "i like A kit" on a boxcar.
