Sure, it will.
I use this diff since last week and looks very promising. Waiting for trackday session to check it on tight corners :)

i'm using it atm together with 4.9 FD and i love gearbox.. did rally recce last weekend with it and it was almost more fun than actual race :P
also i went once to hill climb "track" with 3 people in car and street tyres.. it went really well around hardpins..
but for rally use (with protlum gas shocks with bulbs, 80% tarmac, 20% gravel, with holes, bumps and corner cutting setup) it's not even close to plated lsd.. but for 100% tarmac setup with stiffer springs should be ok..

I reccomend it! Very good built quality, works completely as expected (I use torsen) and price is also very good.

Not quite, the mk1 diff is fractionally narrower(3mm I think), you can machine out the mk1 case slightly or modify the diff to take a bigger diff bearing.

Actually bearing ID and OD is the same, it's the thickness
of the bearing that presents an issue. If you use the OE
bearing, the case halves will not close, the interference
is approx 4-5 mm.


You would have to grind the inside of the case to clear the
width of the body of the LSD, switch the bearings from a
17mm thick to a 15mm thick carrier bearing, delete or
partially machine the speedo drive gear to a hat shape
and fudge a spacer or two to get it to fit, even then
it's very iffy. Mine's done with all the above mods and
installed, but have not fired it up yet or tested.
It may have been easier to have had the case halves
machined to fit the extra width with the OE bearings,
but probably would have still had issues with the speedo
drive gear. I am told the Cusco clutch type diff is a bolt
in swap which may be better for the track, but opinion
on Bali's diff is it's better for the street.
I'm working hard to get this rebuild back on the road
this year, but don't have any actual results yet.

I have read that this is a torsen diff with a preload. My question is: does it work when one wheel is in the air? Quaife-like diff in this situation would not work, while the clutch type diff would still pass the torque to the wheel which has grip. What is the behavior of your diff in tthis kind of situation?

Balli makes both a Torsen-Quaife style and a clutch type LSD. You are correct that the torsen diff will not work with a wheel in the air, but the clutch-type diff will.

If you are interested in his products, I suggest contacting Balli by email (listed above).

quaife use preload rings too..

it's not enough to go with one wheel in air (or broken axle) but it helps going overcrest, over holes and so on
i use it in my street car.. it could be ok for circuit or hillclimb because of hard suspension and nice road, but for rally clutch/plated type is the way to go :wink:

Sorry Mates I have no time for forums.

Lukak told right. The pre load (and the moment of inertia) will drive on short holes but with broken axle the torsen will not lock the gears. It's totally enough in racing but no way for heavy duty off-road.

The mk2 can be prepared into an mk1 box but better way to make an mk1 shape torsen. (I can)

Now I have mk2-3 torsens on stock. And some 4WD too.
