Hey... im lookin to put in a limited slip rear end... really now clue on how to do it or how much it would cost... any info? and no.. i dont want a locker..

Dont do it. Limited slip is a waste of time IMHO. If you dont want a locker, then weld it :)

Lock the rear before the front my friend. A welded rear really isn't that bad. Just make sure your tire pressure is the same in both and try to avoid sharp corners. The amount that you save on welding it up is much better than going with an LSD. BTW, LSD's are fairly pricey.

you mean 1.9TDi??

They have a 1.6TD and a 1.9TDi. The 1.9TDi is about $3500 for block, tranny, ECU and harness. 1.6TD is about $1500-$2000 for everything. Add on the adapter for about $750 CDN. Gets pretty pricey. IMHO, get a 1.6 Diesel from a VW Fox (super ass cheap), get the adapter and turbo the non-turbo block. Much cheaper and you only need like 2 wires to get the thing going. Thats what im gonna do anyways.

oh yah, www.vwdov.ca (http://www.vwdov.ca)

thats the VW District of Vancouver website. Good FS section. My prices were from Bugs and Bunnies in Chilliwack. All the blocks I was quoted on had less than 60K Km's.

The adapter kit comes from www.acmeadapters.com (http://www.acmeadapters.com) tell jeff and david Hamish sent ya.

Ive got a 1.6 td in the sidekick right now. It has tons of power and its sitting stock. I would love to see what it would do in a sami. As for cost just stick with a 1.6 of any sort td or na. The 1.9 td is harder to find and the tdi is a whole diffrent adventure.

03-23-2006, 03:28 PM
what do ya mean by td or na? im assuming turbo deisal and? any one know a motor up for sale :) thats not in shit condition?

03-23-2006, 07:29 PM
na=naturally aspirated (not turbo or supercharged)
