Hi everyone its my first post I’ve been doing a lot of research but haven’t come across any info on this theme. Is anyone running a r200 from a r33 in their 240z and if so which cc axles are you using or what could possible work with this setup? Thanks in advance
I have done my research on this topic and i hate to start another thread but i am having a hard time finding a definitive answer to my question, specifically for my 78. Here it goes: I know that the r200 clsd out of the 87-89 turbo z31 models will swap into an s30 with the z31 billet adapters, it seems like it is a tight fit I would like to avoid axel wrap issues. I have read and heard several different scenarios to get them to properly fit. The first scenario that ive heard is that if you flip the cages with the z31 billet adapters the r200 will fit in. For the second scenario I have also heard that in some cases if you flip the cages and use two passenger axels (which are the longer axels) then the axel mates up perfectly. The third scenario is the simplest and i hope it works for me. I have read on a few different threads scattered through out the intra-web that since my 78 s30 already has a r200 differential that i wont have to flip cages or swap axels to get it to fit. It seems like every thread is different; some are saying that it works best if you only flip one cage and not the other, some say flip both, and others say swap out the drivers axel and don't/do flip both cages. Any advice would greatly be appreciated obviously i would like to get it right the first time with as little head ache as possible, any advice would be greatly appreciated especially if you have done this swap on a 78 s30 with the pre existing r200. I am planning on running an l28et with a fs5r30a so having the cv axles is crucial. Thanks y'all.
