TE Cortina Diff

Hey all just got myself a TE Cortina, 250xflow, t5 manual, ray hall manifold, 350 holly blah blah bit done...Anyways being a P plater i took advantage of the Minispool and snapped an axle 25 xpline....Now am looking at something stronger, any suggestions for my application. I do have 3:55's and mini spool was sort of hoping to keep them but if i have to get rid of them i will do.

Thanks Shauno

PS i meant axle wise.

Re: TE Cortina Diff

In my old TD I used 31 spline Moser billet axles and Romac maxispool in the Borg Warner housing. Just as strong as a 9" with out all the added weight and drag.. Looking around $1200 for axles and $375 for the spool money well spent.

Re: TE Cortina Diff

i had a std 3.7 bw diff with a mini spool in a te cortina,which ran 12.1 @ 110mph with no axle problems. after 2 seasons, it only slightly twisted one which i put back in.
just try another std one and see how it goes.. cheers.. any chance of a photo of your ray hall manifold??

Re: TE Cortina Diff

hey
is there any difference between the redline/cain/ray hall manifold as they all look very simerlar.
the only difference i can see is the ray hall 3/4 runners are angled a little bit.

I run a 4 pinion fairlane diff shortened in a very light Austin , it handles massive abuse with no problems , axles were shortened 60mm each side by resplining and the housing cut to suite , much lighter than a 9" and worth looking at.
