So I just bought this diff and most likely gonna get it installed around the end of next month.

The oil that comes with the diff is motul 75w-140, is this oil grade what is meant to be run in the diff for a daily driver?

Anyone else with this diff or a similar one have recommend a certain oil?

  • Q: I'm running 408 final drive with a Quaife Diff on my 370Z and the recommended Oil for my set up is as per the below which Award Diff suggested, give them a call as they are a reputable company.. You should look them up or call a reputable local supplier..

 

My advice to you is to make sure you take it to a diff specialist and not an everyday mechanic!! This is specialised work!!

 

[We would recommend using Castrol Axle Limited Slip 85W-140 mineral oil. This oil is readily available from Repco stores and the Repco part number is 3377666.]

Any update on this? How’s the diff upgrade? Any better handling?

Grabs betters around corners so coming out of a corner is better, the OEM diff is OK for everyday but that's where the buck stops just like everything about this car.

 

So yes I do believe it can handle better if you actually drive it hard enough to notice.

I find my diff doesn't kick in enough sometimes when i'm  going harder through an uneven corner, or maybe its the wheel lifting, not quite sure, it doesn't happen often enough. 

However I do think the 370z is better than you give it credit for. It's no track monster but comparing it to other cars around the same price point and type, you get a pretty decent steer.

I've had the diff in the car for about 2 weeks now, it's still pretty tight and I'm hoping it will settle in a bit more.

Most of the clunking has stopped, and it's mainly noisy when cold.

I definitely prefer the oem diff for daily driving because the traction control kicks in pretty much all the time.

FORGET about the traction control on these cars!!!!!!! They are useless!! all it does is bog it down..

Turn it off , I don't even bother its pointless if your trying to launch it quick..

I LOVE these car''s but there is nothing refine about it, to get it where I want It to be I would need to spent 40k on top of the cost of the car then It would be where I need it to be.. But spending that much more on it I'd rather buy another/different car to achieve what I want out of it...

Agreed. The traction control is terrible. Kicks in way too early. I turn mine off everytime I hop in.
