PostSubject: Installing a limited slip diff   Fri Dec 31, 2010 8:59 pm

Anyone have any know how on installing a limited slip? This will be my first project of the new year. I'm looking to avoid what is said to be a 400$ job by installing this baby myself. Any know how or assistance would be great. I'm sure a few cold ones and some pizza will be available. My car is not prepared for approx. 400whp a supercharger offers with an open differential.

I don't know how, but we could figure it out worse case scenerio. I have a bunch and brand new tools if you wanna do it over at the house. Can't be that bad.
I have never seen anything that has been to hard for me to figure out. I read blueprints for a living.
I installed a locker in an atv once, but that has nothing to do with real cars. Let me know if I can help in any ways.

Sounds like a possibility. It will probably be around March. I've got to come up with the 1k$ for it first. I've looked at some step by steps with pics and it looks fairly straight forward. I need to pic up a factory service manual as well.

Sounds good, if it comes to that let me know. I will help. If we dont get done overnight you can leave it in there, I live in a nice development and you could it would be safe in the garage. The tool box above has a radio and a fridge in it to keep up entertained.

I should be putting on my 8 piston brakes around then and 16 inch calipers.. maybe we could help each other.

Definitely sounds like a plan. I'm going to be installing a bbk on mine sometime as well. It will be useful knowledge as well.

It's a quaife tab helical gear differential. Here is the site I'm planning to buy from.

Overview
Part Number: QDF11L | SKU: QIF-QDF11L

The Quaife Differential powers both drive wheels under nearly all conditions, instead of just one. With an ordinary open differential, standard on most cars, a lot of precious power is wasted during wheelspin under acceleration. This happens because the open differential shifts power to the wheel with less grip (along the path of least resistance). The Quaife, however, does just the opposite. It senses which wheel has the better grip, and biases the power to that wheel. It does this smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from the other wheel.

In drag-race style, straight-line acceleration runs, this results in a close to ideal 50/50 power split to both drive wheels, resulting in essentially twice the grip of an ordinary differential (they don’t call open diffs “peglegs” for nothing).

In cornering, while accelerating out of a turn, the Quaife biases power to the outside wheel, reducing inside-wheel spin. This allows the driver to begin accelerating earlier, exiting the corner at a higher speed.

The Quaife also controls loss of traction when the front wheels are on slippery surfaces such as ice and snow or mud, providing the appropriate biased traction needed to overcome these adverse conditions. The Quaife Differential provides constant and infinitely variable drive. Power is transferred automatically without the use of normal friction pads or plates seen in other limited-slip designs.

The Quaife’s unique design offers maximum traction, improves handling and steering, and puts the power where it is needed most. A definite advantage whether on the track or on the street.

The Quaife is extremely strong and durable and since the Quaife is gear operated, it has no plates or clutches that can wear out and need costly replacement.

The Quaife is great for street driving or racing. Racers don’t have to put up with locking mechanisms or spools that created unwanted understeer under power, or in the case of front-drive cars, even tear the steering wheel out of their hands when cornering. Because it behaves like an open differential during ordinary driving, street drivers will have trouble telling it’s there until pushing the car’s limits.

The Quaife has been proven in everything from SCCA Rally to Formula 1. It provides autocrossers with such an advantage, it has become “required” equipment for a winning effort.

More and more auto manufacturers are specifying the Quaife ATB Differential as original equipment in their high performance models – for good reason – it works!

from what i've found when working on vehicles- it usually is not that big of a deal with basic knowledge- usually its take parts off and remember where they go and which bolt etc. went where- i haven't ran into having to modify anything to get it to fit etc... i wouldn't be good at that
