Yes most of them have limited slip, but not all. To get everything to fit I had to take the outer lugs from omega 2.4 and shorten them 5mm. then I took the drive shafts from omega 3000 and all fits.

Original steering rack and steering column. But the steering column is extended with a steering quickener, with 2.0:1 ratio.


Here are two pictures that show the difference between the small and the big diff.



The next upgrade of the car was a different front spoiler and mount the dashboard.




Then follows a summer (2013) of tuning and a lot of joyride and filming.





Of course some clips:

Next i mounted a airvent on the roof.


A friend and I took a trip to mantorp and watched some cars, it was nice with the fresh air intake.


It last thing to happen in 2013 was that Bilsport (the biggest car magazine in Sweden) had a meeting in my town.

The diff did not like the torque, so in the fall of 2013 I welded the diff. More in next update....

An update of the project.
2014 New adjustable wishbones


The braking of the machine at overtake.se I had problems with the wastegate it would not give me more than 1,7bars boost pressure that resulted in the 450HP at the hubs.


a little video from overtake.se
http://youtu.be/88eKysnQxUM

I swapped the wastegate to a new precision wastegate and loading 2,1bar which should give at least 500HP at the hubs.


a little video from when I test 2,1bars boost
http://youtu.be/Bh-pY6R377g

I got home a new map sensor which gives me the ability to have 2,6bars boost.


I also brought home a BMW E39 rear suspension to be installed.


The rear end I have mounted now will be installed at the RWD project number 2, a 8v calibra to get a SAAB 2.3 Turbo and R25 / R28 gearbox.

thank you.

I have ordered a BMW E36 steering rack and front hubs from 9-5, will build a new front suspension.

And tomorrow I start cutting out the floor to fit in the e39 rear suspension.

This will soon end up in my garage, will be some kind of daily driver. I´ll work more with the black one, make it more like a drift car.

The blue one is Qrew´s old strip car, have made 9,48 @ 402m

Now both are at home in the garage.
The engine and gearbox from the black to be picked over in the blue, then it will be completely new engine concept in the black.
