Post  Rob on Mon Oct 01, 2012 9:20 pm

Not sure how its gonna go but hopefully it's a cheap way to get more grip SmileSmile






I think it'll be a bit of a handful on the road Razz
But hopefully faster on the track SmileSmileSmile

i've got a spare diff i was going to get welded, but thought about splashing out for a Quaife to be on the safe side. Very interested to hear how you get on as i might go back to the welded idea if you don't have any low-speed troubles with it

thank you sir. My finances won't stretch to a Quaife either yet, but as i haven't got the know-how to change the gearbox myself i can't stretch to taking the welded diff back out if it is a bitch to life with lol

bit of a hijack, but i'm guessing your pretty got with Volvo gearboxes then

i've got 2 x M56 gearboxes, i need the internals taking out of one & putting into the casing of the other. Is that something you can do? (& possibly fit a welded diff at the same time lol)

i'll have to come down, i owe it to Stevie to visit anyway

hmm, i'm being dodgy. I want the ratios of a 850TDi (M56LK), but as they used an Audi engine the bell-housing is different so it needs to go into a M56H case. I pick up the M56LK tomorrow, & already got a spare M56H (& diff for you to weld Wink) lol

well i've got the gearbox, bloke says it was out of a V70. I couldn't find the id sticker to confirm the final drive ratio, but it's defo off an Audi engined Volvo & "think" they only did the 2.5 diesel so should be the right one

don't fancy coming upto Cov to swop it into BT do you lol

got to come & creep round Rob to swop the TDi cogs into the M56 casing (& weld up my diff), then yes its a swop over onto BT (as well as fit my lightweight flywheel & 850R clutch). I was only messing, i'll get her on the road then bring her down to you's for the gearbox. I'd cry having to pay the prices it costs you gas-guzzlers lol

Well
Last night I decided to go for it SmileSmile







It's a little difficult to park and out of turnings
But on the road it's brilliant SmileSmileSmileSmile
It doesn't push on at all
I'm really pleased SmileSmile
I hope it's dry at lydden on the 13th so I can see how much it improves my lap times Smile

i'd worry about the driveshafts snapping on sticky tyres. So you reckon i should get mine welded instead of splashing out for a Quaife? (ps i've got no powersteering lol)

I can't see me breaking a driveshaft
Apparently they're pretty strong
How soon are you planning to do it?
I'd like to see how I get on at lydden before I suggest welding it SmileSmileSmile
