all up cost:

lsd diff- 300
3.89 gears- 110
Oil and bearings- 115
fitting- 120
-----------------------

$645.


had a mate fit them to my car, though im pretty sure the backlash wasnt setup. it kinda gives a vibration under deceleration.

will probably have to take it to a diff shop. more $$$ again.

the lsd is a custom setup i bought of ebay from another guy who does up fords, the gears i got from "nissan here" in thomastown, bearings from melton bearings, oil from bursons.

shop around or go to a diff shop, shouldnt be more than 900-1000 drive in drive out.

man lately my girl has been costing me money! the exhaust needed fixing so got a catback and tip on it for $420.
then the other week my radiator blew out, $80 bucks for the gear to get her home from bendigo, and $320 for new radiator.
now the diffs really getting noisy and playing up, diff shop says $550 to take it all apart and set it up properly with all new bearings (mind you ones in it are only 5 months old), more again if if anything is stuffed.

this is getting out of hand lol...

aparently steel prices have gone up lol... the catback was $330 one muffler redback and the tip was $90- the $330 includes the cost of a new manifold to exhaust gasket and fitting as that had blown out. so probably a good enough price.

the radiator was $280 for an aluminium one like it came with, but since they wear out faster I paid for a more expensive but longer lasting brass core radiator.

good old inflation.

diff ended up costing me new gears (old ones fooked). got another 2nd hand set off ebay coz i couldnt wait to search around with car off the road, cost $190. then $550 for fitting with new bearings and oil (locally- small shop here in marsh probably little more expensive than larger towns and cities).

still a little noisy but heck they are old gears, cant expect miracles. ill trade the noise for better take off anyday.

to get a set of gears that age that dont make noise would be very very good find.

got a set of 1 year old 4480's off ebay for $360 and a 2.5 inch tube cat for $180. :o

Now its save up the fitting $$$ and take her to the shop. :D

its been a little over a week now with the 4480's and the difference is not as noticble as expected. Dont get me wrong its better, and the note changed a lot, s**t down low, but above 2900rpm its a howler. Needs a hotdog in front of the muffler as its a bit loud and droney down low.

I think the problem is the diff ratio and the stock cam. until i get a higher rpm cam, its not going to pull hard when I downshift. The headers gave it a little bit, but when doing 100k's and shifting into 3rd to overtake its going straight to 3500 or so rpm, and stock cam gives up after 4000 rpm, so thats 500 rpm of making power.

Headers can only help so much I guess.

a wade grind around the 1673 mark should be the magic ingrediant methinks.

Opinions (and i know you will all have one) :
will I need new valve springs with a 1673? I know ill need vernier and shims, and I have capa flash unit. If its a good idea while its all out Ill get them too. If it will help when it comes to tune time, and reliability its a no brainer.

Pls feel free to add your 2 cents about the valve springs.

might look the same but i think the xr ones are rated to cope with a higher level of lift.

Might just have to talk to chris at wade in a few weeks when the money is there.

first update of the year!

have sent money off to FTG auto slavage so they can send me an AU cam for wade to regrind! will be the 1673 on an au cam with a 115 lobe center to suit the auto gearbox. should be good for a band from 2400-5000ish give or take depending on how it gtes dialed in.

will be good to get a cam that suits the diff instead of just revving when It gets given the beans.

90 bucks for the cam, 150 odd for the grind. then its install time.

anyone got any leftover shims they wanna sell me?

decided against valve springs, I rang wade cams, and they said just dont hold it on the limiter and you will be cool.

turns out i cant afford the springs after being forced to pay a $400 phone bill that was caused by a 3rd party. And the telco's have put up walls for 10 months, so had no choice. bastards.

it needs it mate! if i go from standstill and give it the beans for flat out take off it doesnt dip below 4k rpm on the changes, so its not making any power just revving, as a stock motor peak power is at 4krpm. the extractors might push its peak to 4500, but still no good, need power to be strong to 5k plus to make it work with the diff ratio.
