    'Nutz' had that one patterned after the stocker. It's much beefier and he was trying to get people to sign up to have them machined. I believe he's working on making it out of a piece that's closer to the final dimensions to cut down on the amount of machining. You might be able to find a couple threads on here that were started by him.

    Clunk is essentially gone, as I was able to use an aluminum block in replacement for the cheesy factory rubber front support, due to the strength that the steel front support area has now.

    Correct. Sadly, no investors or commitment to purchase could be shaken up every time I tried in many areas. Mr. Weymar was quite persistent and certainly financially capable. Let's hope now that he has the torch, it can be lit on the west coast. I'm also very excited that an LS3 powered car is being mated up with my diff.

    Re: Differential Install

    Well Im going with rpm to do the install, and I might do heads and cam at the same time!

    I'm excited to put some power down without cringing every second...

    Now I gotta get some 305s under that thing

    Re: Differential Install

    just did my diff today. about 1.5 day of slow easy going. take your time and not trouble. the write up make very straight forward. I did get hung as i did remove my ball joint from the hub. i had to get a ball joint pry bar. already had axle rebuilt and replaced that while in there. added a UUC bushing. I am no mechanic and did it in my garage about 18" off floor. I never worked on a car before my V and i dove straight in mod hell!

    metric short and deep sockets
    19, 21mm gear wrench
    18" breaker bar
    pry bar to pop axles out
    be sure to have a vent (if diff is new)
    dead blow and brass hammer
    metric hex wrenches

    the touch and go part was raising the diff on a jack while trying to get it in position. Literally used my leg to jack it up while laying on my side to lift in and get driver axle into diff and then into position. (I did diff leaving entire driver side together). if you got any questions.. ask. I have not driven it yet to evaluate because i am still doing my cutouts.

    save mad coin and have pride and doit yourself... unless im missing something there are no real tricks.
