Thanks.
Yeah , can not recommend enough a positive displacement supercharger for road use upgrade.
Sooo useable = well in good road conditions ( even with standard gearing and no supporting mods!!!! ). = once I fitted the harrop sports diff cover.
I do need to finally go the next level =( it's just still soo factory = non intrusive = sooo user friendly).

I'm not familiar with the Harrop cover but be careful with aftermarket diff covers. A lot actually affect the throw of the oil onto the pinion and cause it to wear out prematurely. The standard cover are bowl shaped for a reason and it's to help the oil flow into a circular motion. Diff covers with a flat back make the oil go up and back down in a splash and actually affect the throw of the oil to the front of the housing.

Yeah , its been installed for 2.5 years ( would have thought any bad press would have made it out by now!! ).
The main differences with these over standard ( look smick= as per harrop) , = but two mount points = tie diff in better to body = even those mine is mild= with mine no axle tramp now!!!!

Fascinating stuff , yeah I understand , and I'm not going pull harrop diff cover off to compare internal shapes.
I hope and have taken on good faith harrop have done their research and supplied a performance version.
Can't say about the internal lube , but it certainly gets rid of / reduces axle tramp!!!
