    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years. <br /><br />
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment. <br />
    In 2017 added a R200 with a M-factory LSD and an 83 close ratio 5 speed.<br />
    Also added a Full Z-story header and exhaust in July 2017.

    Okay just placed the order to Silver Mine stub axels and PayPal the guy for the 04 STI diff Now I need to find time to drop the header and exhaust. Install the new header then this new diff with lower gears. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  9. Replacement/Upgrade Headlight H4 options

    I have used Hella for over 15 years with H4 bulb. They have been outstanding. I purchased the off road version even though they may not be legal. Excellent high beam light and easy to adjust in the 240. Check them out on Amazon. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

  11. Series I cars

    I would think that most of us that have been around the early cars understands the term is used loosely. It is not definitive in most changes over the years. Sort of like is it 71 or 72 because that is what the title says it is because of what the build date is? For me I like to know the build date because gives you a good place to start. My $0.02.

  12. Subaru differential stub axles

    Interesting options for someone who wants to build a specific differential and can do the labor themselves. Neither have popped up on my Radar so cant comment. My goal was to determine if there is a low budget way to add LSD to a 240Z. I have a line on both a 2004 & 2005 STI diff with 3.90 gears. I am leaning toward the Silver Mine stub axles to maintain the low cost goal. Looks like it will be close to the $1000 mark. That assumes the diff does not have to be opened. Moelk is the only one who has responded to having used them and indicates no issues.

    Zed I think I am agreeing with you. The question I posed is assuming using a used Subaru LSD was diff if you can find the type and ratio you want. Most are available in the 250.00 CL or 550.00 shipped and 30 day warranty. Obviously you can write a check and get exactly what you want. My R200 with a new Mfactory LSD cast me 1800.00 + 300.0 for a R200 got me what I wanted and is basically like new. My question I posed is really about a lower budget DIY that most owners can do in their garage. I was hoping there were others out there have actually done it.

  14. Subaru differential stub axles

    This is where I find it confusing. I have recently been searching and find that a Subaru conversion (clutch type) will run about $1000 - 1200. That’s 500 for 3.90 diff from 2004 Sti, a 500 for axles. A DIY install. Isn’t a quaife unit for a R180 about $1100-1300, I had one installed in July in an R200 with new bearings and seals $850 cost of professional install. Now if you are capable Of setting the backlash correctly then okay it’s closer, but not a few $100 Where did I miss it
