    Fine work you are doing here

    Found some more verification the guts work in F code diffs. This option is looking really nice for my situation.

    I seem to have located both an affordable 4.11 Altezza and 4.10 Mark 2 diff. Choices

    I came across a real nice Toyota 86/Scion FR-S diff (actually they're like a dime a dozen on ebay) and I CANNOT find a lick of info on the internals. A couple guys successfully popped them into Lexus IS300 that came with 8" rings, but nothing and I mean nothing indicating that the internals are the same. Just the housing. The 2JZ is way more brutal than the little guy they throw in the FR-S so I am using that as a clue.

    I am optimistically pessimistic on this one

    Bought my desired 4.10 LSD.

    I'm still intrigued about the FR-S diff tough...

    I have a BRZ I wouldn't waste your time with that diff, the torsen diffs suck IMO. The IS300 diff is a bolt in upgrade for the twins. You're way over thinking this your options are a stock rebuild, a slightly better Weir rebuild, low end aftermarket like truetrac, and then the higher end diffs like OSG, TRD, Kaaz etc.

    I'm thinking for the future and for the others

    One day it'll be so hard to find/not worth it to keep changing out OEM diff's we'll have to come up with something. This goes along with engine swaps and upgrades. I don't think anyone would be angry to learn a current production part would sneak right in to a MK2.
