  • Diff help

    It looks like I've found myself an LSD from a z20. Will any sort of diff from a z20 go into any other z20? I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this and am completely unsure if it has to have the same number of pinions / same gear ratio (apart from changing the speedo reading) / whatever else.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Any will fit. From the a70 supra series too.
    It's probably a Torsen LSD though, good for circuit bad for drift.

      Ahh ok sweet I'm not too interested in drifting, just having a nice street car with one or two track days a year.
      Is a Torsen LSD not a clutch one?

        No clutches.
        This video explains it pretty well.

              Most Z20/A70 diffs are clutch pack mechanical not torsen. Torsen only came out in 92 model Supras (GA70/JZA70).

              The complete assembly is interchangeable with the exception of the povvo pack 1G-EU GZ20 Soarer which has the smaller F-series rear end.

              If yours is G-series rear (easily identified by the built plate) then you can put the whole diff assembly in (or swap diff centres over if you want to keep your c/p ratio).

                Thankfully I don't have the povvo pack hahaha.
                What's the c/p ratio?

                  Yes any G Series Diff from z20 soarer or a70 Supras will fit, if you have a GZ20 you will want to try retain your 4.55 Ratio otherwise the replacement diff may make it drive sluggish if it's a lower ratio.
