XD Diff + Auto

Any way to build up the 3 spd auto BW to handle more power (bit of an oxymoron), or should i replace it with a C4 or what evers good?

Whats a good price for a 2500 stall convertor?

What diff gears should i put in it with out sacrificing highway driveablity?, and what sould i get them out of? (pref with LSD)

Re: XD Diff + Auto

i would just go wit a C4 and u would probably be looking at around 400 to 500 for a high stall with a 2.77 LSD disc to disc out of an XF/E for around a couple of hundred out of any xf ghia or ZL fairlane

Re: XD Diff + Auto

Dont know, just thought 3.08 sounded like a good number

How about 3.22? , no holdens came in that capacity.... or did they?

Re: XD Diff + Auto

How much would the diff+discs form xf or zl roughly be?

What does a quickshift in a auto do?

Re: XD Diff + Auto

If by the title your fitting this into an XD a diff from XF wont fit. Coil spring rear against leaf spring rear. If its in an XD a diff from any previous model will fit. If you use one from XW XY they are shorter ( handy if you want bigger wheels/tyres) only difference being hub size. Is this car six or v8 powered because if your talking BW35 I`d assume six hence a 9inch would be severe overkill, esp on your wallet.Only other option would be if you can find an XF or later ute or van lsd they should be ok seeing as they are leaf spring also. Good luck
