Geeze with these things you can be just unlucky.Or have 300Kw and last for years.But iff it blows there is only one person to blame. About $1000.00 Depends whats broken..Change the oil often and don't shockload it, as in dumping clutch etc..Auto's are reasonably diff friendy imo...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

i agree with the above.

i had a long conversation with a diff rebuilder at work the other day, regarding the strength of various diffs.

he said that as a general rule the borg warner 4 pinion LSDs (im pretty sure that means all LSD from EA onwards - XR definately have 4 pinion) can handle about 400hp, depending on the driver, i asked him if they would last longer behind an auto than a manual, and he said maybe, i think definately, as the shifts are softer etc.

if you are producing more than about 400hp (i wish!!!!!) he said go 9 inch.

obviously, if you do heaps of burnouts then they dont last as long, the friction plates in the LSD mechanism wear out and you have to get them replaced.

by the way: anyone know the best diff oil to use in a 3.45:1 LSD in a EB XR6?

Shell LS 90

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.
