The rear end diff info is coming through Arizona racing, they are wanting to replace alot of inside piece.. I am telling them we need to inspect that housing just incase.. if housing is defective and the torque/power cracks it open like a nut, then the guts fall out.. so we are looking, and from what i was told by these guys even the C5 vette had no replaceable 3rd party diffs, just guts only..
Hell, if it would fit, i would put 12 bolt rear, or ford 9 inch cut/narrowed under the damn thing.. at this point, the warranty doesn't scare me no longer since i will be buying another real soon within 4 to 6 months.. just haven't mad my mind up yet.. might even get GTO and mod it some, or even check out the hemi charger...
Now, when they look at mine, they ar not going to see any problems because my rear diff looks ok.. but what i have done is compiled pics to show them the problems others have had like cp33, digtalpimp and so on..
They are wanting to replace with 3.90 ratio, but i don't know about that yet.. we are going to re dyno and stress test car on the dyno some, they have used set of 3.90 to try out to see what the numbers may be..
Also, some of you guys got confused.. I NEVER said i changed my diff yet what i said is,
My mods thus far:
punched V LS6, Its now is 402.
AFR stage 2 heads, best rockers/pushrods/lifters money could buy, cam change and of course valves as well.. (the afr stage 2 heads are modified slightly with larger intake & exhaust valve size)
Magna Charger, larger TB recently added, cold intake (no more perform box yet, otw)
b&b exhaust, installed those baby's are nice, and B&B guys are the best!
so car is way fast, torque is extremely high.. thats why i went to 402, you will understand when i scan dyno tomorrow.. been thru alot today and freaking tired.
Special balanced drive shaft is otw..
also rear diff ordered otw, Arizona racing had diff, gears & inside guts were told to be best in world, and really not changing it do to other ppl having problems, I'm just way over hp range for diff, and that is the only thing GM gave me hell about was that..
(You guys they were being picky about me say outtake valves. geeez, you really didn't know or understand me? damn i was tired as hell, was up for 26 hours,, broke down on 202... give me a break. please)
Now when i get it all done & completed there will be plenty of pics and data to go around, for all the real nasty piranhas.
Here are a few pics of my 2005 V now, with a few mods..
more on the way. I added Supercharged in block set on each side of car under the V logos.. I think it looks good. So far, so many compliments its insane.. Also on back i do not have CTS on r side trunk, it is another V emblem also.. So that really screws with ppl's heads..
