That looks great. And what a value! Does anyone have data on how well it cools relative to stock?

@fika84 appears to have installed it with a temperature sensor, but I'm not sure if he has data available yet!

I DO! Not track data yet, but spirited driving I've seen between 140-160F.. Really excited to get on the track and see if I get close to 200F+ Haven't made up my mind on cooler routes yet until I get this information!

The fluid I'm using is Torco RTF and it doesn't look like I want to go over 212F by the looks of the viscosity levels... I don't know if that's really the case though..

You and me both! I had to grind for the 3" Perrin to clear it.. and even with long hangers it's pretty much right up against it.. No rattles, but I'll keep an eye on it.. just don't want the exhaust to cook the diff!

Oh that's right, now I remember seeing fika's post. Street data is nice, but let's face it: a part like this isn't exactly that beneficial unless you're really pushing it. Track data is going to be much more telling.

IMO that RTF fluid seems pretty much on the limit of "acceptable" for the diff, viscosity wise. Hopefully the cover & increased capacity helps it stay cool!

I'm interested to see the data, the cover should help a decent amount mostly in fluid capacity, I think.

I'm using the stock Torsen diff. If you have a real LSD, then you can use this version: http://performanceracingoils.com/crx-ls-75w90-nt/

Well it looks like that's next up on the list! I'm using the MFactory LSD.

Do you rock Miller Oils for engine oil as well?

Are you thinking for the stock diff though? Or for a mechanical LSD as well?

Yes, I've been running Millers Oils for years. It's the most durable race oil on the market with the most friction reduction.
