Cant wait to hear how it drives! Have you looked into torsen diffs? Not really viable for our little justy but i have a ford focus im looking at installing one in. They seem to be simpler being just mechanical and not relying on friction material.
They are awesome little diffs, I was looking into trying to make one work with my Justy but stopped about halfway through my project because i decided i needed something with more of a locking action for my adventuring, those Torsens are great on road and snow though. The Torsen is torque biasing with no real preload so when I get into situations with my Justy where one wheel is in the air, that Torsen acts like an open diff and will just spin the wheel that is off the ground. I am currently looking into other options, but for the price and the simplicity, the sprung/clutched justy diff is a viable option for my situation as it does have a "locking" effect when power is applied. My only worry is the amount of backlash that would develop in the spider gears as that clutch material wears down and increases the clearances.
I bet you'll love that torsen in your focus, what year is it?

It already rides, but im not exceeding 3000rpms and with no pressure by now due to engine bearings changeing. Anyway the sound of turbo and bov is great. Soon i will tune it up and i'll be able to tell more

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

justytrudeau: Are they interchangeable?

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Just replaced my headlights with LED's as well as all my dashboard instrument cluster. None of them work, and now my taillights have gone out too. Likely wiring issue, eh?
