The Rear differential in my 81 280ZX is going out...and i was wondering if i can put in a differential of a 280ZX TURBO in it and have it work. Would it increase horse power any? Are they compatible?

feedback is needed.....Thanx

I don't think the turbo rear end will help you any I think they have a lower ratio especially if it was off an automatic car. The rear end is farely easy to change. You can drop the whole rear suspenion out farely easy. Just three main points and some other stuff.

First you need to determine if you have a r180 or r200 rearend. if you have a r200, find a r200 from an 87-89 turbo zx. it is limited slip from factory and will bolt in. if you have r180 your kinda sol.
