all good. the VLSD is essentially just a coupling on the side of what is an open diff.

Hi, what is the engine temperature doing? Is it consistently holding the engine temperature in the middle of the gauge once it's completed its initial warm-up?
If not, your thermostat is faulty.
If yes, then you'll need to do a check to see if the servo motor that controls the mix of cold air & hot air is working properly. It could well be stuck in the cold position. Another possibility is a blocked heater core.

Hi, thanks for that info, especially the tip about the roll pin as that is something that is normally only learnt through bad experiences. Your method of the plates and plenty of amps on the welder is exactly what I used to do on my AE82 FXGT's.

I have no experience with VLSD and I was thinking I might have to weld something else apart from spider gears. Sorry for what might have sounded like a dumb question about the welding of the diff but I would rather do that than make a dumb mistake 😂

My 15 year old daughter has just finished her second race season in my old FXGT, in just over a year she moves into my class so I need to get this VZR handling better so she doesn't beat me.

Once again,  thanks for the help

fair enough. its just like welding the diff on any other open diff front wheel drive car - being deep inside the gearbox. When I last did one I cut out some plates to weld inside the spider gears to spread the load. Easy but make sure you crank the welder up enough. The factory VLSD is junk and on dirt yeah welded would be the way go to.

Replace the roll pin for the diff spider pin while you are in there - if they break the diff pin wanders out the side of the gearbox casing and its surprisingly common.

Dirt track racing. I have raced fwd cars on the clay for years, always had a welded diff in them. The VZR was a new car last season and I ran it with the factory VLSD, didn't like it.

yes, but why do you want to do it I'm interested to know. There are only a couple applications where a welded diff is advantageous

Hi, has anyone had any experience in welding up a lsd in a N15 VZR? Any advice or information would be appreciated,  I am totally new to Pulsars so I have a lot to learn.
Cheers

Thank you. I am going to see an exhaust shop this weekend so they can quote on the whole setup.

Thanks

Any dump pipe designed for a W10/W11/U13 DET motor in a FWD chassis will work on the W10, but you're probably better off getting something custom made - make sure you go turbo back, the stock dump pipe is terrible.

Catback, front pipe and muffler are all unique to the W10 - unfortunately you're looking at a custom made system the whole way through.

Just looking to replace the exhaust. Are there any already made parts you can use, like the Dump, front pipe, or cat back section for the SR20DET in this layout?

Cheers
