    Thanks again. Looks like they only do the entire carrier. Chances of finding just the clutches maybe slim.

    Yea same deal with Holden, they quote me over 1k for just the carrier.
    I think I maybe better off with a diff from a vf wreck until I can afford a upgraded diff with some good gears and no clutches

    From what I've heard/read 3.7 might be a little too much in terms of lighting up the wheels.

    I'm thinking 3.45 and a stall in the low 3000 range will work well.
    If anyone's done a stall install or have a rough idea as to how much it'd cost, I couldn't find much on high stalls and what people are using.

    The difficulty is jumping on a wreck as soon as it's post. These diffs are the first to go within a few days of them posting. Hopefully something soon comes up
