LSD diff for sale.

Post by bash »

Very rare. Taken from a ma61 supra auto many years ago and then was in my Excel for a couple of years when it had the Lotus engine. Ive got a longer legged diff in mine now.
Its a 4.1 :1 ratio and was very quiet when in the car.
£500, no offers as it is so rare.
Im going to the showground at Lotus in the peak on Sunday if anyone wants to check it.

Hi Bash, very interested as when I rebuild the engine in my SE I was thinking about upping the power.
I’ll also be at LiTP.
I’m trying to recall was the 4.1:1 the ratio fitted to the SE ( I know the auto I have has a 3.7)

You could swap your 3.7 ring and pinion into the diff, it just bolt in. I do have a brand new still in lotus packaging 3.7 ring and pinion. I wasnt planning on advertising it yet but I would just want back what I paid for it but that would be £300 so it would be cheaper to swap yours into this one. If you are serious you can have first refusal on the diff though.
I think some are 3.9 but my standard diff was 4.1.

My parts list shows that it was 4.1 until chassis no. 89D2237 and then 3.9 from then (also shows VIN no.s for LHD drive cars) - these are notes pencilled in so can't guarantee they are correct....

Hi Bash, I think I may have confused you - it will be for my SE, not my SA.

Thanks Neil, my parts catalogue didn’t have the pencil annotations and was clearly inaccurate as it shows the 3.7 also for a manual. I’ve also found the version with the pencil in info, so looks mine would be the 4.1.

Sorry guys, I am still getting enquiries because they are so rare but it has been sold.
