Searched the forum and didn't find anything.
Is there a source to get the info?
I am planning to get the Quaife LSD and would try this install.
I've done a 282 before, is this similar?
Special tools required?
Or is it something better left to a tranny shop?
Does any one have a source for a used diff? The $1,200 is a bit stiff on the budget.

Do you need a used stock diff and you are considering the LSD because you can't find one?

You can get another transmission for $500

Looking for a used Quaife LSD for the F23.
Although a new one would be a great Christmas present from my wife.

I just split an F23, last weekend. You need to put it in gear and stop the input shaft from turning, and remove this screw/bolt/retainer, that's under a rubber/metal cover, seen above right from input shaft. (Cover had been removed, in this picture.)


After that, it's a lot of screws to remove, then gently separate the case halves.

Once apart can the differential be removed or are there more steps to be able to it?
What is the preload on the differential? .004? I think that was what the 282 was.

Once apart, the diff can be taken right out. No magic necessary. I do not know the preload.

Also, I've heard of OBX differentials, a budget knock-off of the Quaife. They're abouta third the price.

I did some research a while back on the OBX unit and it did not fair well.
The quality of the unit appears to be much lower than the Quaife.
If it is that simple to split the case I will give it a try but do need to know the pre-load on the bearings.
Anyone??????
Looks like I will be $1200 lighter in a few months.

After reading http://www.miataturbo.net/s...x-helical-lsd-56707/
I'd be willing to give OBX a try.
