Boost.

I've only broken 1. It was a early 444 conversion in an ap1 dif. It died vs a neighbors Porsche one Sunday morning.

Since then I've picked up 2 ap2 difs with matching prop shafts. Both difs have been disassembled checked out cyro'd and rebuilt to spec. Ones a stock 410 set and the others a 457r. I've swapped them complete out a couple times. It's like driving a whole different car each time.

The only difference I know of between an ap1 dif and an ap2 is that the housing is heat treated differently, everything else measures the same but the prop shaft and prop shaft connectors are different. You have to change the connector at the tranny to in an ap1 to use it.

I haven't been able to break one since but I'm sure I could if I put my mind to it.

The weak point seems to be in the housing on several broken ones that I've seen. I wonder how much the prop shaft change did to help mitigate the stress on the dif.

I'm no expert but there's a couple on here

A tad off topic....but how often are we to change the diff and trans fluids in our beloved little sports car? That's referring to a car that's driven "spiritedly"...but certainly not abused or raced.

The manual calls for every 30,000 miles

I also pulled my slave and polished off that knub that people have spoke about in the forums took me 15 min and made a world of difference for anyone with a stick/notchy pedal like mine
