R230 Rear End

I just purchased a 240Z no engine or trans for a small block Chevy/Borg Warner 5 speed swap. I have read that the R230 is a much beefier rear end than the R180 or R200 (halfshafts more than the differential). Is this a straight bolt-in swap? What vehicles came with this rearend so when I go to the parts yard I know what to ask for? thanx in advance.

73 240Z needs a clutch, has custom body work, gills, wing, louvers
72 240Z unmolested AZ car - interior needs help but car is complete
70 240Z AZ no-rust desert dweller saved from Potters Field

Re: R230 Rear End

Here are a few threads to start. Use the search at hybrid there is tons of info...It is expensive (~$1000), and read before you post or you will be ignored there.

Many people run low 7's in 1/8 with just the R 200 unless you are >>450 Flywheel the R 200 seems to hold up well. The problem usually happens with the halfshafts and less than 450 HP usually is NOT a problem. Mine only has a problem if I juice off the line with slicks at track! I hook 100% and melt the halfshafts...Good luck.
