Question!!!

Evo X diff minus AYC stuff + axels VS. Evo 9 diff + axels. Your thoughts?

I also wonder if a ralliart diff weighes less than the 9 diff.... the ralliart looks like it has an AL cover... maybe? Then again, ralliart axels are .3 inches shorter so i'm not sure how that would work with the evo's wider track width.

The Ralliart diff (which is exactly the same as the Evo 9 rear diff, just a different rear cover) and axles are a lot lighter than the stock X rear diff.

The stock X rear diff is around 85 pounds, and the ralliart diff is 45 pounds. Even without the AYC stuff, the X rear diff is still 5-10 pounds heavier than the ralliart diff.

Evo 8 and 9 rear diffs have a AL cover as well but a different mold.

Looking more into this, the ralliart track width is .6 inches narrower than an X. Wouldn't that pose a problem for the ralliart axels?

Great! I think you had mentioned in another thread you need the rear diff bracket from a ralliart to fit on the X, is that true? Would you happen to have the pt #?

You only need the bracket if you are using a 8/9 rear diff

Which would you say is the stronger LSD (the Evo 10 or the Evo 9?)

Would you mind if I ask you couple of questions?

So say I want to swap the rear diff with the Evo9 one, or the EVO X RS one:
1) When I loop the AYC lines, will I still have ABS?
2) Does it affect the ACD operation? Will it operate correctly?
3) Why looping instead of plugging those lines in the pump itself? Is it just easier that way, or if you plug, it won't work correctly?

I assume after this conversion you get the EVO similar to the RS version that only has ACD and rear mechanical diff?

That's what I want to do with my GSR.
