That there is an Australian diff, it works but you have to install it upside down.

Dude, search for LSD swap or something. This place is a buzzsaw.

The old-timers are just trolling you, as this is one of the more rudimentary (and frequently asked) questions on the forum.

Any 1.8 diff, be it from an NA or NB, will fit into your 1.6 NA provided that you also swap the propshaft and axles. Also hang onto the bolts and nuts which connect the propshaft to the diff- I think those are different as well.



Also, Erat, loved the picture. Props for that.

Confirmed, Diff flange bolts are different.
