2.277:1, might be a bit tall


Might also be a bit wide of a housing too. Car total width is around 1600 mm so flange to flange would probably be around 1400


Supposedly same housing and all as KP starlets, just different ring gear / stud pattern / mounting

I came across that same 2.2 ratio, wouldn't work too well for this I don't think but would be useful for something.

EDIT: with 175/50/13's (so I can fit Civic brakes) and a 2.277:1 diff it would be geared for 276kph at 11,000rpm... lol.

And about 4000rpm for 100kph


2.929:1 would be 216kph at 11000rpm

And about 5100rpm for 100kph

If you do go with some sort of starlet based diff, 3.1 heads are also available: https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/x606284693

(just not very common)

I'm a bit concerned with the smaller C/W and probably smaller axles. It is a light car but I don't want to have to worry about it all the time. T-Series should hopefully be a good compromise. And LSD's are easily available.

The AE95 diff guy surfaced again so hopefully have some measurements this weekend.

They seem to cope fine with around 140 hp with lsd, but yeah they're a bit small. Lightweight though.

It's hard to know, being maybe 250kg lighter than a KP Starlet you'd think it would put less stress on it but on the other hand it's a 190hp/12,000 rpm engine (limited to 11,600 in 6th apparently). 

178hp without airdam, but still.

The ZX12R has about the same torque as a 4age, while people upgrade the KP diffs with 4age conversions.

I had a 4agze in an AE86 years ago and the T-series held up fine (T50 not so much), no LSD though so single spinning inner wheel all the time, so less stress I guess.

is there a plan for the original motor? my friend has seized his and is looking for a cheap replacement 

Not sure yet, I was thinking of keeping it and keeping an eye out for another n360 to fix up because I have a problem.

Got any photos of his one?

myKool just pointed out that Zebra Onehunga just got an AE95 Carib with the axle/diff/propshaft I need.

But I'm in Wellington. How do I get it? I'd pay someone to remove it but no idea who'd be able to.

@sentra  might be kind enough.

He's definitely pretty enough.

Welds look good. You know the trick of putting a bit of copper behind the weld? It really helps with blow through and doesn't stick to the weld. I just use a bit of flattened copper pipe.

That's a good idea, would have been good in that spot since I could get to the other side.
