I can't really say if it's what you want or not. Personally, I want a ******* from Katee Sackhoff and no amount of drivetrain hardware is going to change that. It does sound like the diff package you linked to will fit your car however.

oh crap, would a diff from an auto work?
Yes. Auto cars didn't get Torsens, but otherwise it'll fit.

No internal pictures. It's an old pic so the remains are long gone.

How did it happen?

Take one supercharged miata + a 1.6 diff and loan it to your high school senior son to use in a movie project then call the tow truck.

In fairness to him it had been whining a bit and I knew it was on its last legs.

Call partsgroup. The guy there has everything, and most at a decent price. I get stuff from them all the time. After my last "emergency", I got the parts in 1 day.

To do a 1.8 swap, either open or limited slip...

You will need the driveshaft, axles, complete housing and diff unit from a 94-05 car.

Expect to spend between 600-900 bucks for everything if its a limited slip, 300-600 if its an open (based off what I have seen).

Sound about right guys?

If you want i have a parts car and will sell you any thing needed to fix it 90 running gear.
p.s. the differential I have is open, but it stronger because instead of putting the stress on the ring and pin. you just do a burn out.

oh yeah bitches.... i don't have any pics... but i snapped a PPF in half Several people in Ga can vouch for me.

Actually, i snapped the top half at one point (didn't realize it, i thought i ripped a diff mount because when i would get on the throttle the shift lever would torque over to one side HARD) and then i went to the Gap and drove the snot out of the car. I was on my way home from The Gap, about 10mi, and the bottom part snapped and the whole drivetrain was hanging down about 6in. I win.

Communicate with me instead. I'm in Buffalo, too, so no shipping delay/expense/hassle.

Can provide a 1.8 swap with either a torsen or open diff.

ok so Ive been reading up on this, saw a few posts that say chisel off a spacer, and remove the exhaust and alot of stuff that seems very time consuming so I have some questions. If Im just swapping it all out, do I still need to do all this? Can I take the current diff out with the halfshafts still attached? Can I put the new one in with them attached? Is there any chance of the driveshaft being rusting in the transmission?

Also what is the PPF?

PPF = powerplant frame, which runs along the driveshaft tunnel there.

The swap itself is and isn't time consuming. If you know what your doing it can be done fairly quickly. If you don't, you will not do it quickly. Certain things can affect the speed of it... namely rusted ****. My axle was seized and consumed about 5 hours of effort and a broken extractor.

You will want to disconnect the 4 bolts holding the stubshafts onto the axle, and drop it that way. Then pull the axles out. The rust will not be on the driveshaft as much as it is on every single nut and bolt under the car

Edit ** I apologize but i'm getting ready to leave work and i just used the first underbody pic i could find.

1> is where you will disconnect your stubs
2> is a general area where your driveshaft bolts will disconnect
3> are the spline nuts that connect the PPF to the diff
