    No, it's a Porsche Boxster S. Mine is just like this one with yellow rollbars.



    I've owned it since 2002 and have been thinking it might be time to upgrade to one of these, a ZL1 Camaro, or a Z06/ZR1:

    Very nice!

    Actually it includes everything, my first Dana build started with a 4.10 PowerLock that I rescued from one of my old girlfriends fathers 1964 F250 pickup bed trailer. A buddy of mine gave me a wide 8 3/4 Mopar axle housing for doner brakes and axle ends. The $500 were for new Moser axles, new 35 spline side gears and wheel bearings.

    While I'm at it, does anyone center the pinion leaving 2 different length axles? I think it's 1/2" off isn't it? The ends I bought have plenty of wiggle room so that's no problem. Is it worthwhile?

    I always thought that a solid rearend would have different length axles, and the pinion was centered. I don't see why it would have to be off-center. On an IRS the pinion is off-center because the halfshafts must be the same length.

    IDK? I recall reading it somewhere and happened to measure mine. Yep, the center of the spider gears is center, which puts the pinion off center and the axles the same length. I don't build them, just measure (and attempt to rebuild).

    I'm getting excited to see how the 4.10 gears run. On Wednesday I finally met up with the guy who is cutting and welding the big chevy ends on and adding 1/2" to each side to center my tires (without spacers.) It's going to be difficult to go a couple hundred miles breaking in the gears without getting on it good. I forgot to order a speedometer gear for the th400. Anyone suggest a favorite vendor?

    Sorry Tony but on HP cars I have never run a speedometer, for example my 67 Camaro has not had one since the 70s, just near felt them necessary.

    That's OK, I was going to get it from TCI but they didn't have the right gear or housing. Found a 44 tooth gear and housing on Amazon from a vendor that is new to me. "American Hot Rod Solutions". Much cheaper housing than others. Hope it works.
