    You're pretty local to me... Want mine? It's sitting in my buddy's garage since I swapped for my 3.46 LSD.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    I don't know if they're still doing it, but the first post in the other LSD thread by MFactory (here) said they charge an additional $450 to install the new LSD in a pumpkin they have in stock, then they add a $500 core charge which is refunded when you send them your old pumpkin. This is the route I'm planning to take... I just hope they're still in the $450 range.

    Honestly thatís a good deal. I watched a couple videos and it just seems like a lot of work. Not necessarily difficult, but a solid dayís work. And if you donít have things like a vise on a workbench youíd have to get creative. Plus theyíd presumably double check things like the backlash, etc.

    Backlash, preload etc. is really important and easy to mess up. Iíve seen a melted ring and pinion. Looked like it was made of clay...

    Totally - And both Sockethead and Reasoned1 said it's a relatively easy job to swap the whole pumpkin...
