Default The New Miatamania: NOW with Torsen!

Lord...that was pain in the *** to change...I couldn't get my old rear end off the PPF and had a time getting the new one on...and the front bolt didn't want to go in so I substituted w/ the an extra rear bolt...but:

The new torsen out of a 94 is now in my 90.

Did a redline fluid change and also changed out a leaky brake caliper and did a little body work from the wreck...I ran out of time so I need to sand/primer my rear bumper and put it ON and go ahead and get the dent out of my fenders next weekend.

Just had to update b/c I'm happy!

lol, me either, I'm just scared about toasting what is left of the poor factory clutch...

Finally got everything in minus the flywheel.

After doing that I'm having second thoughts about doing the clutch myself...such a pain in the *** w/ out a lift.

You'll be fine doing the clutch. Its not as hard as some people work it up to be. Plus, after you do it 3-4 times, its as easy as changing your wheels.
