Decker, now if i recall correctly as i only saw it once I was talking to my transmission guy and AWD diff was taller than the FWD diff in which case there is not much we can do. Meaning we wont be able to run it because if I was to lift the diff with something then the side differential bearing on one side would become obsolete and the only way of course would be to shrink the housing which is impossible, I spoke to lightning speed AWD ek owner and they said they are running an open diff in the front.
So my trans parts will be here on Monday and the car is going under next week so I will try to stick an LSD in it as we have a bunch laying around at the shop but it might not be possible. :(
I guess lets see if anything can be done.

By taller, you mean the final drive ratios are different between front and rear...correct?

Hopefully open diff front and rear will still give plenty of traction.

I read so many different posts on different attempts changing the final and how it wouldn't affect the awd output or should i say rear/front ratio. AWD diff is physically taller like a different differential period longer housing since it has to accomodate the transfer gear.

I hope I am not biting myself here on the final gearing and stuff I see a lot of people manipulating gearsets running PPG ones or obx so changing those will not be a problem.

I will check on the final with my source. I will count all the gears and conclude my gear ratios start/finish in the case I do have issues later but the diff is taller means I would not be able to use an LSD.
That white EK that did the write up on the LSD on AWD was a B series trans and in his case the diff was shorter than the stock one so he shimmed it from what I understood (the transfer gear from the final).

Hope that explains it a little.

Juan we didnt!!! my local fabricator ran all the wires out the tank on the upper quadrant and we just sat the cup into some holders so we can use the float for the gauge! lol it works with no issues doesn't even know the fuel hat is missing.

Monjarassi I will be using 75w-90 Mobile which is what I have already been using.

I will be there with the car on FL2K15 all the skeet racing will be done post party so make sure you come out!!! ;)

Finally got this bad boy!!!





3/4 ton truck spline shaft with 1410 to 1350 U joints common in stronger vehicles, the stock Honda Wagon ones were around 1310s.

If the exhaust doesnt give any static and if the shaft works the front is getting tubed aluminum as well.
