Just weld a stock 165 rear diff... you won`t brake it..

It`s not as hard to drive as you would think.. i`m running bouth a "welded" center and a welded rear on mine, and as long as you don`t go to hard when taking hard turns from a stand still, it`s no problem.. ( i use mine for 1\4 mile, normal driving to work, trackdays..)

( running stock 205 gearbox, and stock welded 165 rear diff ( a welded 165 rear will be stronger than a welded 185 or 205) and have not had any problems the last 3 years. ( car have gone 9.8-143. but should be able to get it down to 9.5-9.6 with a perfect launche.)

An open st185 should be the same as any st165 diff.

Sweet pics.

I noticed the badging, they are blacked (it seems).

I have been throwing around the idea of painting my spare badging a black/black chrome like deal (kind of what you see on the is300 sportdesign I have).

Did you just spray yours a black?

Car looks amazing, awesome job. When you did your valve cover A/N fittings did you take out the baffeling plate? The piece that is held in by alan bolts.

So safe to say no power steering.

^There's no resevoir in the engine bay that I see, so probably not.

I like the idea of the alternator below, but I like my power steering too!
