strait fit might need to swap on the input and output flanges on the diff, but thats easy enough... just dont over tighten the input flange with an air wench because it has a crush sleeve on it... i would definitely recommend you have an air wench handy for swapping the input flange it makes life easy

What gear ratio did you get? If its a size 188K I don't imagine it would be cheap...

Ive thought about doing this set up more then once but have always been on the fence about It , So what Im reading right Is that If I have the following , Intake,Full catback (no cats),Pulleys,Intake manifold swap and a shark tune, Adding this will will give me that much more In gains ?

Some have said for the 1500$ Its not worth It on the m52tu

Ive never dynoed the car wich I intend to do some time soon but Im curious as to what my car Is putting out as we speak with these simple mods I have as we stand Intake,Full catback (no cats),Pulleys,Intake manifold swap and a shark tune,
