  • Tax return = Quaife

    Well just found out my tax return is going to be about 4 times what I expected, so its time for some toys. I'm starting the research process for what is going to be involved in getting a Quaife LSD. Between normal driving and starting Auto-X, it will be wonderful for Buffalo winters and rally. Did a search but didn't come up with much. I remember reading somewhere that its not quite a direct sway in, that you had to separate something from the old diff and install it on the Quaife. Don't quite remember though. Anyone know any hidden pitfalls to installing one? And any special places to get one the cheapest (relative I know)

      YOu need to remove differentail gear and install it on the quafe. When SPS offered them, they charge about 500 more for one with a gear alreadu installed on it.




      Oh....and since I can only afford a phantom grip, and you are getting a quafe..you just made it to the bastid list with Green Monstah.

        welcome to the club, well almost


        and yea the ring gear is what you need to swap over. and bearings will have to be pressed onto it. For the ring gear install you need to drill out the rivets on the old diff. Find some nice grade bolts that will thread into the diff(ask TimT where he got his from and what size and such) and then you just bolt the ring gear onto the quaife. You just gotta be careful about it tightening in a star pattern, slowly. I think there is also some debate about the torque specs for the bolts too. Again, ask Tim how much he tightened his down too.

          I've been wanting to get one for a while now, and am excited as all hell that I actually have the money around now. I already have the money set aside to do struts, springs, rear swaybar, strut mounts, and bushings. Should be at the end of march when I get back from school and get to start playing.

          Whats involved with changing over the ring gear? I've already had the tranny apart so getting to it isn't a question.

              I'll PM you the info on the quaife. I asked TimT about the Quaife a couple of weeks ago. I've got the size and type of bolts you'll need and how to install the ring gear correctly.

                      haha, SupraCharged007 you must have written the same time I was b/c that wasn't there when I started [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img] I'm also looking at getting the Fidanza flywheel while I'm at it and have the car ripped apart. Thanks AZSaturntuner for getting me the info.

                      And I figured I'd get some interesting responses to the Quaife, haha

                        If you are looking for a good deal on the Fidanza check e-bay there is a guy that sells them on there for a pretty good price. I don remember the name exactly but his seller name has "rev" in it somewhere, i think....

                              Best price I've found on the quaife so far is $1159.60 with out the ring gear. Saturnmotor sports is listed at 1750 with the ring gear. For the difference I think I'll just swap it over.
