Default Strange diff found on a Jap eunos roadster...Any idea's what brand??

It's a 1.6 diff
But just look at the flanges... nothing like that is used on the 89-93...
It's not a vlsd(oem mazda), the vlsd shafts are not compatible.

Looks like it's been in there from day 1...

The flanges and diff look like they are out of a 323 GTX. The cast iron nose and aluminum housing are from a Miata.

Here's a GTX diff.
