I am considering ugrading my engine and am considering changing diff also.

Will a welded diff put too much stress on my drivetrain?

in short..the welded diff can put a lot of strain on your rear drive components

half shafts and such can twist/snap, the diff can break its welds

these will leave your car undriveable and will have to be towed unless you feel like getting parts and tools and doing a road side repair (which i plan on doing if my wleded diff ever breaks)

but it is a good cheap alternative to going out and spending 1500bucks on a 2way lsd, or an air locker and considering the s13 diffs are worth around 50-100bucks..if it ever does break you can score yourself another one for next to nothing


with your motor can i ask why you want to change it?

how long have you had the car?

my 180 had a ca18det in it up untill 2 months ago..but i changed it because i had to

these motors are very underated and talked down...but they do produce some good power...spesh to learn on

i had a mate with a 1990 sil ca18det with a t70 strapped to the side...that thing pulled as hard as a mofo...Dr. Drift in bayswater has had heaps of ca18det cars pulling over 220 rwkws on his dyno after a remap after the owners had spent around 5-8 grand on the engines

220 rwkws is a fuck load from a little 1.8 turbo..they really get up and boogie

but if you are set on changing the motor...then the most obvious choice would be to go with an sr20det..simple..bolt in..no mods required and doller for doller they will produce more power than a ca18det when it comes to modifying them


alternativley if money is not a barrier....grab an rb20,25 ive even seen 2jz conversions in a little sill....although...you are probably looking at over 20grand for the whole 2jz conversion
