How smooth is the shifting on the RAV4 box? I am most curious about the syncro situation. I am not as worried about the power upgrade cause if I do the mod, its cause I have maxed out the ct20 and have not plans on getting anything bigger.

I was recently told that the rav4, alltrac and is300 all share the same part number for rear lsd. Anyone want ot verify this? maybe all that needs to be changed is the gear in the rear for ratio rather the whole pumkin.

The shifting experience on the ravbox is pretty much the same as the alltrac, and so it should be as the two share an uncanny resemblance and utilise similar shifter mechanisms ( external).
Apart from the lower top speed youd be hard pressed to know it had been swapped.

the answer is probly in your links but i only read the original. did you finish the turbo setup? any updates? if you still own it is it faster than a 3sgte powered car?

Still engineering the turbo install.
Biggest buttache so far has been that rear bank manifold but ive managed to package it all in down the back now so its not too far from being screwed back together. :)

so your center diff is either locked or open like the early st165's? no viscous?

thats interesting, so in open mode its like the stock all-trac diff but when you push the button its fully locked?

no more rav t-case = no push button center diff
now its just a close ratio alltrac box

someone should figure out how to do that push button awd lock with
viscous coupling that would be sweet
