Question LSD Diff or not??

Well just wondering my baby is built July/2001 and it's i think one of the last AUII XR6 HP's around before the AUIII rolled off.

I've heard that mid production of AUII's the LSD 3.45 Diff became an option as opposed to standard. Just wondering can anyone confirm if this is true or not. IF it became an option i'm just hoping the previous person ticked the LSD option.
I can check when the car comes by the LSD tag on the diff, but i'd like to know in advanced. :s5

Thanks.

It's true Gaz, mid-way thru AUII Ford dropped LSD on HP's back to an option. I remember seing the mechanical specs for the XRs in their virtual showroom, and there was a note with the month that LSD has become an option - I just can't remember when.

EF Falcon Guy,

I have a XR6 HP AU2 Series 2 that was also delivered July 01 and was nearly caught out with this one but saw it on the Ford Website just in time to make sure the LSD option box was ticked. As I understand it (from my experience) any XR6HP built June 01 for delivery July 01 was under the new specs (ie LSD option, side skirts std., colour coded side windows etc.) The LSD option had a cost of $345 but I went off at the dealer as I had ordered in April when it was std. They agreed to cover cost anf threw in Heavy Duty Towbar at no cost to smooth the water. Another example of a lack of communication from Ford and it's dealer network to the client!!

Ahh well looks like she's a single spinner. I had a rough look under the car yesterday at and it seems theres no LSD tag.
Ahh well can't expect everything. For me it seems they swapped coloured mirrors for LSD as mine has full tickford bodykit so those SR style side skirts don't exist on my baby.

Oh the positive single spinners have less mechanical internals to go wrong.
:s3 :s3

I have an EFII Fairmont I6. I do not have an LSD diff or 3.45 ratio gears. Anyone know how much it would cost to convert the single-spinner to LSD and pop in a set of 3.45 diff ratios?

Does the speedo need to be recalibrated??

Easiest way to do that is just buy a complete 2nd hand EF XR diff

Don't know if this helps much, however I am pretty sure that Ford made the LSD on the HP an option at the same time that they added colour coded mirrors across the XR Range. From memory this was around June 2001. I think this was the same time that they added the 17" to the VCT as well.

Don't know why they took the LSD off, must have been to save a few extra dollars. Still at least you have got the manual :s6:

On cars with lsd there is usually a tag on the filler plug saying high performance / to put in special type oil.

Mine is an October 01 build AUII XR6 HP and LSD was an option. I didn't realise that until the salesman asked if I wanted it, I didn't get it. Actually I wanted LSD (no not the drug!) but it was going to take too long for them to deliver a car that did. I didn't think was it worth the wait.
