SO i blew my diff today on my 2004 ba falcon n/a. :(


got a couple of quotes but the best i can find is $1500 installed with 4 pinions instead of 2 that is apparently stock standard in ba n/a's.

Will the 4 pinions make any difference to performance?

for an extra $300 i can also get it done with a limited slip diff. Worth it? and what sort of difference will i notice with this?

thanks everyone :)

4 pinion will be stronger so will take more crap, and lsd improves traction so both good to have.

lsd puts the power to both wheels. so when taken off you get far more traction than the standard single sipnner.
plus smokes em both in a burnout. if ur into that.

No, it will be stronger, if you change ratios you will notice improvements though.
