PD - it's out of a 98' TT 6spd. I'm surprised the forum has come this far without anyone doing this swap & documenting it. I drive aggressively & a LSD is the only thing missing from the equation.

Unfortunately that won't work for you. The 6spd diffs in the US/Canada had 220mm ring gears vs. 200mm ring gears for the turbo auto/all NA cars. The case is physically different and the axles won't bolt up properly either.

SC/GS/LS (98+ at least, up to ~'05-07ish dependng) had 200mm ring gears of the same series. they aren't directly compatible but close.

If i end up biting the bullet and ordering what I want, i'll document it.

1UZ FTW I'm looking to drop a high rev 1UZ in a 240 and make that the go-fast while I make the LS my Super Presidential.

for north american mkiv supras at least:
-all naturally aspirated (5spd manual and automatic) cars had 200mm ring gears and cases
-all turbo AUTOMATIC only cars had 200mm ring gears and cases
-all turbo 6-speed (V16x) cars had 220mm ring gears and cases.

the LS (98-00) has the same sized 200mm ring gear and a similar case, though the rear plates need to be swapped since the LS has mounting points in it.

Thanks.

I've found this info on Supraforums to get real specific. Maybe I should look on GS/SC forums for more swap ...

See if you can arrange to have a nice "Idlers" stencil made. White spray paint can and a bit of masking tape and voila!

unless you fly your car to tokyo to take place in an IDLER's event, that has no place on your tires.

pure posing.
