LSD question

hey guys, I currently have a 2000 323ci, If I dont sell my supercharger to do a s54 swap I will strap my charger on and buy a LSD and headers and possibly cams... What diff would be perfect for a blown 323? If you have links I would apretiate it, also what about cams and headers what brands would you suggest and also post links if you have them... Thanks

you can custom build your LSD with these guys. I've only read good reviews about their products.

for headers, just get the ones off ebay. I'm actually being serious too, if you look on E46Fanatics, theres tons of threads about them, and probably 100 members are running them.. $200 vs $ make the choice

hey man, ya diffsonline is good they charge like over 3,000 for a diff though! I heard good and bad things about ebay headers but mostly bad things, there cheap metal and not fabricated properly... ive read kpengs thread on fanatics and people have posted pictures of the difference between the ebay "supersprint replicas" and authentic supersprint headers and the quality doesnt compare so obviously theres a price difference, I have also heard they dont even bolt up 100% on and more work has to be done... I may just buy Active headers as I will be sending my ecu and buying new injectors from... thanks!

You have no other options for a LSD, unless you wanna change to an e46 rear sub-frame and everything that goes along with it.

Even then, it's probably not the ratio you'd want.

Check out techmax in Mississauga. I know that they are dealing with someone locally for the race car LSD builds.
