The Bali LSD is on my list, but won’t happen this summer. I hope you get your vehicle up and running so you can let me know how you like it before I drop a grand + on it.
Yeah it’s definitely not cheap, it cost me $1573.71 just for the one transmission all in with the LSD not including the cost of the transmission itself, or the clutch etc. This is just for shipping both ways out to joel, parts and labor from Joel, cleaning and powder coating, the LSD, and the rebuild kit with the bearings and syncros etc. I am using an ACT clutch setup which runs around $350 as well. So that’s darn near close to 2K just for the transmission and we haven’t even talked about if I’m doing anything with the flywheel yet.
Ooof! It adds up really fast.
But I’m going for quality and what I really want with this car, so I have been taking my time and not skipping things. Hopefully I’ll like it. I think @Teeth
has one that he likes I’ve heard good things so we’ll see.
The big thing that’s left to start getting done is the engine which needs a couple more things and then to go to the machine shop. My work has started back up again so I need a cheap commuter vehicle while I work on the swift, we’ve just been using the Sienna as our only vehicle for the past year and a half or so since I’ve been working from home. Anyhow picked up a cheap Mazda5 for 2,250 with 215,000 miles on it to use for now so we’ll see how I like that it’s a manual transmission good on gas, and roomy enough to haul some kids around in.
