    mate, unless your gonna spend some SERIOUS cash on either V8 you are never gonna need a 9 inch.

    for the 2-3k for a 9 inch you could get a nice 3.55 lsd center to put in your 10 bolt salisbury, a basic 2500 stall converter, 495 lift cam 118 duration new lifters etc, and regraph your carb/dizzy.


    much much much much better use of $$ imo

    Sorry, just wondering how much do 3.55 LSD centres usually cost (assuming the commo one would be the same to suit a HZ Tonner diff?)

    got mine 2nd hand on ebay complete disc to disc for 350. wreckers will have one tonne centers for cheaper than that though, then take the gear to a diff place like keysborough diff's in melbourne and they can fit up a LSD center to it for around 800.

    i dont think the 3.55 fits straigh into the commo 10 bolt, pretty sure some housing needs to be ground off to fit the bigger crown gear.
