    I figure there's got to be someone parting out their MSP because it blew up again or something.

    I want the diff. Give it to me.

    Why? It is not a very good one. MFactory makes a reasonably priced replacement that doesn't need to be welded in order to hold more than a couple dozen hp.

    The $750 MFactory eats up too much of my remaining $1000 budget for this particular car.

    Is the diff really that weak or is it just the riveted on ring gear? If the diff itself won't hold an F2T, then i'll just roll open diff and deal with it.

    Are they going for that much?? I thought last time I checked the Quaife was about that much and the MFactory was closer to $500. I forgot you're looking at chump car budgets through.

    It's mostly the riveted ring gear that's the weak point, but there have been other failures on the guys in the 400-500hp range (though usually it's 3rd gear that goes before that...)

    I paid $750 for the one for the Escort...

    I doubt i'll ever make 400-500hp, but torque is another matter entirely.

    I could maybe pay $500 for an MFactory if that's an accurate number.

    Looks like your number was closer once you pay for shipping: http://www.crossoverauto.com/crossovershop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1171

    I may have a solution for you Ben. Used MSP transmissions can be had for $500-$600 or so, and I have been contemplating buying one to rebuild over the winter. Mine is making some noise that I *think* is the input shaft bearing, but I am not sure. Anyhow, mayhaps we can work a deal where you get the LSD and I get everything else. What kind of timeframe are you looking at.

    No rush in terms of timeframe, especially if waiting gets me a good deal. I'm probably going to try to find a spare H-type trans myself for this job so the car is only down for a few hours when the time comes.

    I just need an LSD installed before i go back to the Challenge 12 months from now. :D
