Subbed. That money for a roller is a bit much but nice with all the goodies.

I think you got a fair price for the roller plus all the extras, wish I could have found something like that a couple months ago. Oh yeah, if you bought a Supra TT diff why would you want 4:10 gears? Isn't the point to lower the ratio for better mpg's. I know the 4:10's will great for launching, but not to decent on mpg's. The stock ratio is 4.083 and gets 23 hwy. Unless you're building a weekend drag car. Anyways nice pick up.

how come you got a JDM hood? it's the same as a GS300, and you can swap the grill and/or emblem onto the USDM and vice versa...... just curious

That's not a TT diff. The TT diff has fins all down the diff. I did all of this already. I got the auto TT diff.

Hope you're right. As far as I have seen and I've seen plenty, all the factory LSD diffs have heat sink fins down the primary housing. I opened mine up to double check. Only other way is if someone swapped the diff into that housing. Id open it up to check it. Also good to clean all the junk fluid out and run better fluid and replace the gasket.
