Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

I think I managed to put every pieces of the puzzle from many sources together. The JDM R160 Suretrac uses standard 25 spline symmetrical stub axles. The 510 stub axles should slip right in but needs a minor modification. It is not a bolt in stud axle like old R160, but clips in like all the recent ...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

There was a thread with some details on this on the realm many years ago iirc. I'd search a little harder if I wasn't on my phone. I'm sure there is, it's a 12 years old diff. I can't belive I'm the first person interested in swaping it. But I searched the powertrain thread with every key words I c...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Yeah... I've been reading for hours now. Still can't find any information for the the R160 Suretrac lsd swap in a Datsun, but I know it can be done. It is a mechanical LSD, similar to a Torsen. So it's not like the old CLSD where the stub bolts in. It is not a VLSD as described and shown in the DQ V...

Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

I was looking at the R180 LSDs for my swap, but I stumbled on this R160 for sale. Can't find any clear info on what it takes to swap it in a 510. Is it doable? easier than an R180? Does anyone have information on this diff swap? Since I'm only aiming at 180/200hp, I figured the smaller R160 is proba...

Re: Noob build

Is the Lizard skin sound deadener wear resistant? I really like how it looks and it might help to hide the little imperfections on my floor pans. I don't plan on putting a carpet back into mine.

Re: Five-Hundred and Ten

looks very good indeed, especially for a first time. Mine is rusted at the exact same spot. It gives me a bit of confidence since I've never done any patchwork either.

Keep it up!

Re: SR20DE swap

So if it's the same as the KA, the stock headers should clear the steering box? I've heard people saying they needed a custom headers.

SR20DE swap

I've been looking around for a well documented SR20DE swap... but there is so much SR20DET pollution out there I can't find anything remotely interesting.

Can anyone point me into the right direction?

Thanks
