finished the install of the lsd yesterday and did the break in, it's still noisy as **** but not as bad as when I first drove it out of my parking space. I haven't changed the oil yet, will probably do that this afternoon aswell as checking all nuts and bolts

yeah, how much low-speed-turning noise and chatter is normal?
just changed the oil after break in and filled with the kaaz diff fluid and now the car's finished (for the moment)

I had a kaaz about a year ago. It was awesome compared to Brainacks rx7 one. That was in a 1.6. I broke the kaaz. where the bearings mount it broke off the case.

There is going to be a crap ton of noise b/c you have really thick metal plates that are slipping against each other.You will defiently like it, once its broken in.

i've got a welded 1.8l in mine now ...

Cool, I went there a few years ago.
In the bottom picture, I'm still very far from the pyramid, but that was apparantly closer than they wanted me to go. On either side of me are Egyptian "Tourism Police" officers pointing AK47's at me. One of several occasions where people pointed a machine gun at me while there.
