I dont think torque (at least the stock 400) is the enemy of the diff, I think it is the excessive wheel hop some indulge in and all the shock that transfers to the diff. Now, start sending 550 lb-ft back there...why may i ask are you going turbo if your going to limit it to 500-550!!! Unless your leaving the stock bottom end...understandable. I believe yes you SHOULD invest in a new rear.....however the enemy of our rears is low end torque...and with a turbo I believe your low end grunt wont be much stronger then stock.....So technically you should be ok getting an 06 diff/shaft setup...and a kars stage three, but it wont be bullet proof by any means.
:yeah:I dont think torque (at least the stock 400) is the enemy of the diff, I think it is the excessive wheel hop some indulge in and all the shock that transfers to the diff. Now, start sending 550 lb-ft back there...
Dont do hole-shots, and I bet the odds are high your diff will last.
For some people it is, and that's fine for them. I lost interest in stoplight blasts years ago. Too much traffic around here anyway. And I dont have time for the track. 3rd and 4th is where this car shines. For me, it is all about the occasional charge up the expressway ramps. Even over the bumps this car holds them, and has the power to leave the wannabes and neverwillbes well in my wake.so then you are left to 3rd and 4th gear romps, well, thats great, but isnt most of a cars ability to brag based on 0-60 times? Hmmmm?
well i called about a kit and was told i would need to change my vale springs and injectors to get the most HP's to the rear wheels. with a 5 psi boost at 39 hp per 1 psi of boost, so figure mostly stock i'm running 320 rwhp at best then the turbo would put me to about 515 if finly tuned.
High torque or wheel hop ... hmm-m.
The latter is easy to solve, just don't do burnouts. Bob, maybe this has been gone over a bunch already (sorry if it has), but how does the KARS kit help if torque is the enemy?
Yup, you're right ... I didn't realize there was a distinction. :hmm:... I think there is some confusion, I was letting the guy know about My rear end package, not My kits for the cradle.
The rear will definitely solve the torque issue.
... and the answer is no, not if you add power ...
