    Well I rarely buy used parts and today was one of them . Bought a 2g dsm rear diff with a kaaz center section. Crossing fingers and hope all goes well. Ugh the wait.

    I had some concerns with the FTY remote filter housing . And had them modify it a bit . I didn't like all 3 fittings really close to each other and sent them some ideas. They then put it thru the 3d printer for a rendering for a mock. Waiting on the test part to be shipped so I can test fit. 20200617_170537.jpg

    This is the first design which has all the 10 an line to close together for my liking. Also I didn't like the pressure relief port location. It was to close to the balncer and using a fluid damper which is just a tad bigger than stock.

    Well the owner of kaaz rear diff was supposed to ship out the diff last Friday. When I sent him a IM Sat about tracking info he replied back that he was selling locally that shipping would cost to much, When he stated a certain price and that shipping was included in the advertised price. He then said he would send half payment back yesterday and the other half today, including paypall fees. I checked today and two payments are posting. I'm glad I got my money back but I'm like what the f### is going on. May be I will just spend a bit more and just have TMZ build me a evo 8 differential and skip the bs.

    Well after emails back and forth and getting a price quote. I need couple more thousand and I'm going billet wet deck block. It not a hp issue but more of a hp to wieght ratio. Considering a billet block + FFWD rotating assembly will be a few pounds less than a bare cast block.

    Ok so for those reading im going to post this. And can skip the buried threads.
    1. Non lsd rear . Only good for non lsd, except the housing. The housing can be converted to lsd by means of a aftermarket locker or evo non ayc locker.
    2. Non lsd and oem lsd cups will only work with the lsd or non lsd counterpart and will not work with a aftermarket or evo locker unless stated buy the manufacturer.
    3. I can only vouch for stage 2 dss rear axles. They fit oem lsd cups and evo non ayc cups.
    So on the cheap depending on the prices u pay . Dsm lsd oem axles and cups to a dsm lsd rear.
    2 . Dsm lsd axles+evo cups+evo LS (limited slip) center section, which will fit into a lsd or non lsd diff housing. Now with that said, axles can be uppgrade to dss, and the center diff can also be upgraded to a max lock thru TMZ or thru TRE.
    3. Im just going to use Kaaz as aftermarket example. Kaaz LS+ Non lsd or Lsd diff housing+ Evo cups+ lsd or dss axles.
    4. Im not going into much but involves a custom subframe and axles.

    Hopefully I did this right.

    Now for the visual diffrence .Evo cup left and top. Were the axle fits in the cup. Evo has a bigger opening for the tri pod vs the non lsd cups. So lsd axles should be used or DSS.
    Now side by side Evo left and non lsd rt. The evo cup is slightly longer to allow the retaining ring to engage in the locker. 20200705_113520.jpg 20200705_113747.jpg

    Well i did a mock up build on the rear diff and I couldn't be more happier. The ring and pinon gears are in excellent shape. Go figure 1 wheel spin and rough checked it . Dissambled the diff making sure of the shims location on the open diff, tore it down swaped the ring gear on to the locker. Assembled, and done till i get a over haul kit or send it to tre for upgrades. 20200707_190815.jpg 20200707_190833.jpg

    Well i just got pictures of the finished remote OFH from FTY that they made the changes to. And here they are. This small pain in the but has taken 7 months of bouncing back and forth of modifications and delays.. Screenshot_20200716-194101_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200716-195249_Messenger.jpg
