Kscoyote I am sorry I haven post the pix of my diff here yet. Itís because I havenít done my diff yet. I got some guy that is asking me $500 for a diff from a 2002 GT. And he is giving me everything with the diff but I only need the diff tho. But any ways I am working on it trying to find just the diff. Also do I need to program the car or something after I put the new diff? Can the Diablo sport do that? Also what set of gears do you recommend for my car. Can the stock Gt gears be a good choice?



Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.
trust me, it'll be cheaper to install the whole axle, than taking it apart, and reassembling the unit. That's a pretty good price.

you would only need to reprogram if it had different gears. Ask to see what the gear ratio is. The Diablo can take care of it.

With the SC, you're better off keeping the 3.27s.

Now before I buy it I want to ask you if the brakes are compatible and everything, do I need any other modification and what about the length? Is it larger or the same as my v6? What I meant is the dimension of the rear Gt and the v6 dimensions. I am looking at a 2000 Gt. For $500. What do you think?

Also you said that I should keep 3.27 gears. Ok here is my question: Can I find a Gt diff with those gears or I have to put them. I really donít want to get into changing gears. Because the GT diff come in different gear ratio. But I donít want to hurt my engine either. So one more time thanks and I really appreciate what you are doing

As long as they're compatible with your ABS system, everything will bolt on. The brakes are the same, the 2001+ cars have the same brakes as the GT. The dimensions are the same. It's purely a bolt in for a 2001+ car.

The GT if I remember correctly had the same gear ratio, but who knows what was installed in the car.

The way to check is to put the car in neutral, mark the driveshaft, and count the number of times the wheel turns to one turn of the driveshaft, while the rear of the car is on the stands.

If you turn the wheel 3 1/4 times for one revolution of the drive shaft, they're 3.27s, 3 1/2 turns, they're 3.55s, 3 3/4 turns = 3.73s, 4 turns are 4.11s.

Ok thatís handy, I mention that I was looking at 2002 gt diff for $500. Well not anymore the owner sold it, so yesterday I saw 2000 Gt stick. Is a 2000 GT 100% compatible with my 2001? or there are some differences. Thanks I want to have it done for this weekend so I can take it to a dyno. However thatís not now, first things first. Thank you.

The axle hasn't changed since 1994.

You can even use a Pre '94, if you want to put wider wheels on it (The axle's narrower). The chassis dates to 1979.
