Re: Difference In Top Loader

Gidday from W.A.! From my alcohol abused memory, I can recall the output shaft was 31 spline, the extension housing was a different length (shorter?) & possibly made of a higher strength material. I believe that the close ratio box was more suited to circuit racing & the wide ratio was more suited to drag racing. I know that when fitting the phase 3 box to a standard G.T. the drive shaft had to changed as well.(been there, done that.) Hope this helps.EL GT4me.
