    Hey guys
    I have question regarding differentials

    I currently running a jap spec rev 1 3sge in my gen 4 mated to a s54 box

    Now every weekend I will take the car on a touge run, the car holds on so bloody well no tyre noise or anything

    My questions is I will be replacing my box for the correct s53 soon, will I have the box outside the car will it be worth putting an LSD differential in it or should I spend the money elsewhere on wider wheels suspension etc ?

    My two cents is if it handles that good and your not having issues like excessive tire spinning exiting corners spend the money else where I put agxs and a rear white line sway bar , did wonders for my 88 coupe

    No spinning at all and I drive it stupid hard

    Mind you I coilovers, super pro bushings and negative 3 camber up front

    Might just do the box then

    Thanks for the advice

    I bet that thing rips I'm jealous. I bought a total poly kit from a place in Europe did your bushings make a huge diff I haven't installed mine yet

    I felt a massive difference over stock
    But didn't do the sway bar bushings as I'm upgrading sway bars

    Corners really well now it's setup properly

    Definitely recommend the poly bushings

    Just need wider wheels and tyres more bracing too

    But I'm losing a lot of power as I have the fe gearbox is a 3.7:1 final drive vs the 4.1:1 that I should have

    That's the same box I have slow as shut around town but on the freeway has some legs I have been collecting parts for two years for a v6 swap I have a e153 from a solara prob gonna do a build thread on it When I first got my car I thought it was an LSD cuz can't even get a second gear scratch but a tired old fe was the prob lol
