Bought a 2nd hand diff with 3.45 ratio from a BA GT off of eBay. Then took it to Southern Diffs here in Canberra, got them to rebuild the diff and install it in my car. Costed me $500 for the diff. $1600 for rebuild, install, and some bushes.

+1 for the diff gears. 3.45's or higher. a set of 3.7's from an xr6 turbo 6 speed manual would set things alight.

would nail that 60 foot down a bit. a low 13 anyone? :D

since these cars run off the brakes for speed input (i think? please correct me if im wrong), you dont need to correct the speedo when doing diff swaps? just the shiftpoints?
