torsen is just as good as quafie but a couple hundred bucks cheaper..quafie your paying about 100 bucks for the name, thers no way in hell you would ever tear apart either one so no need for all the warrenty..its like havein a million mile warrenty on the borla exhaust, what is gonna eat through that piping?
when i blew my last tranny i disected it just for the fun of it and it actually looks fairly simple, just about 15 bolts holding the thing together, just open it up, tak off the old diff, attach the gear ring around the new diff and put in place, it seems pretty straight forward, just time consuming
someone told me about a bearing that i need to get...
0. Remove Trainy from car of course...
1. remove 15 bolts cover comes off trainy
2. remove old diff
3. remove bolts attaching on old diff that holds the gear ring
4. install gear drive to new diff
5. install diff bearing ????
6. Shim diff so no play???
7. attach the speed sensor
8. bolts back on 15bolts
10. install back transmition with new clutch along the way right
Why has to shim.. so new diff is not the same size as old?? so there's play and that why need shimming??
From my understanding, it has to do with different tolerances in the casting of the bellhousing, so it varies from install to install. The shim kits come with multiple shims of varying thicknesses...you don't use them all, only what you need to make it fit.
And BTW, taking the transmission off isn't an easy task...even with my friend who is a certified diesel mechanic doing the bulk of the work, and with air tools and a commercial compressor, it took us the better part of two nights (working 9pm to about 6am) to do a clutch install. Its not impossible, but not easy at the same time.
