    Hi, I've nearly finished my TD04 build and am going to have it tuned to around 170 bhp. At the moment there's a 1.6 clutch and flywheel in it (and 6" diff). Has anyone had success with using a stock 1.8 clutch and flywheel at this sort of power? I think I'll just wait for my clutch to...

    Hello, I have been on the search for a 4.3:1 Torsen diff on ebay and gumtree. To replace the viscous LSD in my 1992 which is a 4.3:1. But all the ones I can find are Either 4.1:1, 3.9:1 or 3.6:1. Does anyone know where I could find one?

    As the title suggests, looking for a 3.6 Torsen from a mk2.5 S-VT to replace my knackered Super Fuji diff. Thanks!

    Hello my name is Haakon and I'm a 21 year old IT student from Norway. I bought my first Mazda MX-5 Miata in August 2017 and have done a few things to it since I got it. It's a 1999 NB 1.8 model imported from Switzerland to Norway in 2009. It has also been a cup car in Germany earlier in its...

    I know it's a bit of a long shot, but after a reasonably priced Torsen diff not too fussed if it's a type 1 or 2 and preferably a 4.1:1 ratio. Located in East Anglia or willing to post. Thanks Andy

    Hi All, I previously owned a beautiful Mk 1 R-Limited import that had all its original bits including the genuine BBS alloys. Photo of my old car: That car was sold a number of years ago but ever since I have regretted it. I am now in a position to buy another car and return to the MX-5...

    Bought a Torsen Diff for the NA, comes with all the relevant shafts so it'll be a simple install. However the guys has it out the casing to prove it's the Torsen to a guy who ended up not buying it, has advised that the bearings haven't been torqued up to spec and are just hand tight. Diff...

    So found myself a 2001 mk2.5 S-VT. wanted to give this model a go as it comes standard with a Torsen diff, 6 speed gearbox, large brakes, nardi steering wheel. Found myself a bit of a steel (i think anyway) £1400.00 for the car. its covered a very moderate 56k from new, comes with a hard...

    So currently in restore mode on my Mark 1 before I add mods, a couple of bits I need first. Some MX5 seats, Mark 1 or 2, doesn't really matter! My drivers side seat has a 4 inch hole in the base and I'd rather replace both with the same set! I need some carpet if possible to fit into a mark...

    Hi guys, I have been enjoying my 97' 1.8 for the past few months now, i was giving the car a general check over and decided to have a look underneath the back end where I spotted alot of moisture around and above the Diff (see pictures attached) this leads to the suspicion of a leaky diff...

    Hey everyone, Just a quick one- I have been searching around trying, can you buy brand new differentials, ideally LSDs for the Mk1? I am still trying to get my head around differentials, but if I am understanding them correctly, they are not so much a wear and tear item? Which may explain why...

    Hi guys, Strictly speaking I don't actually have an MX5 - but I have an E30 with a Torsen differential and you guys seem to know your stuff regarding Torsens. I'm having issues with mine currently and your forum always comes up in my searches so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'll try to keep...

    Good afternoon everyone, I've recently been reading up on differentials and the different types as it is an area where I have absolutely no knowledge. I seem to be getting my head around them a bit more now, enough to know that my 1996 1.8 Gleneagles has an open diff, which means it transfers...

    so i feel i now need longer gears, i have a 5 speed with 4.3 torsen which came stock in my 1.8 eunos S. but now im running 269 and will be dropping a forged engine in over the winter and go for more+ i think longer ratio will suit my build better as i need 3rd gear to hit 60 and thats alot of...

    As per subject, have a LSD off my old 1.8 mk2 and am looking to get a 1.8 mk2.5 to fit it to. Was going to try and get one with LSD already but there's a few tidy examples out there without one so would like to know what else is required to fit it (if anything at all?)? Thanks in advance

    bit of advise/feedback if you have experience with this. I am running a 1.8 Torsen type 1 diff with the shafts and prop in my 1991 1.6 turbo. Just taken the car for a battering round Silverstone and thinking of maybe trying a KAAZ 1.5 way diff. ?????????

    Hi, So pulling away from a junction yesterday there was a noise in the rear of my car followed by a loud metallic rattling. An inspection of the diff showed that the one mounting arm had completely sheered off. How common is this? I was told it is a Torsen LSD, are the casings across the...

    I have a diff but I am missing a half shaft. I have the stub shaft but not the bit that bolts on from there and goes through the hub. I believe these come from 1.8's? Auto link apparently sells them for £70, was expecting more like £25! many thanks
