    we dont know yet. I just called them today and they misunderstood us when I first talked to them... they were waiting for lamouche to come and show them his set. but in fact we asked them to check and make a new set out of mx3 v6 axles (we brought them stock zx2 axles) without needing us to remove lamouche's from his car.

    its been a year since they made lamouche's set so they didnt remember the exact mods to do.

    normally, it SHOULD be around 500 (including the axles and the midshaft from the mx3 v6)

    You will need to shim the unit for proper preload in the case.

    For the price of this it is more resonable to go MTX-75 swap... that way nothing has to be done to a Quaife dif... drops right in the MTX-75... you'd still have to get custom axles, you'd have to get the speedo to work... plus the rest of the fabrication and a custom mount....sure, a little more work, but you have a way stronger trans.... and bigger aftermarket with way more clutch options...people have had those to more than 500hp

    just my opinion on this whole thing....

    Think either someone should go PG... an if they want to go farther... Quaife MTX-75... unless quaife ever makes an LSD for our G5M

    come play with me with your phantom grip tranny and i'm sure at the end of the day you go back home on a towing... speaking by experience ... how many trannies i did see with an open tranny case because the phantom explose ...too much... everybody with klze swap in their probe even with turbo goes with a msp lsd so it can withstand enough power to do the job. Mine coming off and 323 with a bp pullin 385hp at the wheels.

    Impressive... But I wonder how much of a difference it makes... obviousley it's way stronger... do you know how much the MSP is rated to? I wonder what the Focus Quaife is rated to as well


    How much was everything once everything was done axles included? 1.5K?

    and y couldn't we use the lsd made for the focus? just swap trannies and but the focus lsd in?seems it would be easier than modifying everything.

    Or you could just use the good ol Lincoln locker, for those of you who are four wheelers...

    Im sure a ton of you are going to flame it, but If done right they hold up very well. Iv ran them on a few vehicles and never had any problems.

    you can ..its the mtx75 swap they spoke of.. its not a bolt up lotta modifications needed .. cutting the left side framerail.. focus uses a cable shifter unlike ours thats another big diff.. no EASY way for it to work with our instrument cluster.. those are just a few reasons

    theres some guy here with welded diff but it's just for drag application or rally.

    i know someone here that can fill the space between the spider gears with some sort of washer then jam everything by soldering everthing together....but i told me try to turn on dry pavement and you will cry..

    yeah, welded diff is not a good idea when its not for drag only use. the LSD option is the best option. the PG will simply DESTROY your transmission if it decides to break. We have someone here in the clubzx2quebec that destroyed a transmission because of a PG.
