Im one of those guys who can know almost everything about a certain car but when shown any other car i become tech dumb. Ok so here it is-are the DOHC 240s equiped with open diffs? And are some quiped with VLSD? Now heres where ima bit confused. If you want to drift which would be more desirable to have-the open diff or VLSD? Or to make it simpler can i just install a 2-way in either one...this is all very new to me since i love hachi's
I have 2 s13's one with a 400 small block chevy and another as a parts car. These rears are pretty simple to lock, I locked both rears as I was rebuilding them. Both of mine came with the limited slip so I was lucky. I rebuilt them to handle the high torque my motor puts on them plus im at 468 horsepower, but the rebuild was simple and my local speedshop converted the rear to a lock up for about 100 bucks, but I spent 1000's there so they hook me up.
the Rb20 is a pretty straight foward and cheap upgrade for a silvia//180sx.. I think japauto does a review on what you need. Last time i checked what u needed for parts, u could get one for around 2k inc new seals + case of beer for the mates that helped you lift the thing
u dont have factory vlsd, u have to buy the kaaz lsd for 240's that didnt come with optional vlsd....if u buy the kaaz lsd for 240's that came with optional vlsd, u will need the output shafts and i believe a different diff cover. i know everyone says open diff is horrible and vlsd and lsd are more desireable for drifting, but open diff is still good to practice on. if u can learn to slide good with an open diff, u will be even better once u get a vlsd/lsd. trust me, ive dealt with both.
