WTB: LSD unit for Non-M

Guys,

I just found myself the uber rare 3.23 ratio differential from a 325xi. I'm stoked about it, but before I drop it in my car I want to take the time and build this diff into what it should have been from the factory; an LSD.

If anyone out there has an LSD unit for a e46 (type 188K) I am interested. I don't care if its Quaife or clutchpack or whatever. I'm just looking to do this thing on a budget and before 4ngiefest.

Thanks

Want to know rare...I have an e36 rear diff that has a 4.44 LSD. I have been wanting to sell it for a long time. I know the housing will not fix, but according to BMW the internal gears and LSD unit should. If you are interested, PM me.

I thought e36 LSD internals were not compatible for drop in use on the e46 diff case. I'm pretty sure this is true, otherwise a lot more people would have an LSD in their e46. And we would see conversion threads all over the place.

Can anyone elaborate on this?

Anyone?

I have a kazz 3.64 dif that blew a year ago and its been sitting in my garage collecting dust. I ve been meaning to fix it and was quoted about $900 to fix it.
Money is tight right now and I could part with it, if you're interested just shoot me a pm.

Oh and don't ask how it blew because I wasn't driving my car when it happened

You are correct, but when I called up my local dealership and found out I had a special order car with some sort european diff in my e46. They told me that the housing is different, but some e36 lsd internals can be swapped into a e46 housing (as long as the housing is a european version and not a US version). Not sure if that's is 100% true but that's what they told me.

Go to Turner motorsports. They sell a OS Giken Super Lock LSD for about $1600. It will fit a 3.23. GL.
