I agree with your findings
In my car at first I did not feel any power increase and the result was that my MAFS were clogged- make sure to get these checked/ replaced every now and then (lets say 20k miles/ 3 years)
I like your approach. Would like to have it done..
while keeping the original pumpkin. I wonder if Brett can still provide quaife LSD's?
Planning to put a quaife in my 540I & the Z8.
Contacted Brett today, awaiting his response on availability.
Re: Planning to put a quaife in my 540I & the Z8.
Highly recommended. You may need to organize some of the owners to make it worthwhile for the Quaife dealer to do another order of the diffs. This is such a worthwhile option that any serious Z8 owner ought to consider it and a group buy might bring down the price as well.
Ordered the Salisbury unit with the 3.64 & the
3.38 for the 540I from Brett Anderson. Shipped today will be installed next week.
To keep or not to keep original Pumpkin???
Are you keeping your original pumpkin for parts or just to have for originality sake? Also, how many Quaife installed Z8 owners kept the original.
I have the choice of keeping the Z8's orginal pumpkin and was just on fence and would appreciate any feedback.
Re: To keep or not to keep original Pumpkin???
I only kept the internals, just in case.
Tks. I will keep mine as well.
I did not. I have no intention of ever going back.
It is also a "what's this junk?" issue than anything else. For the next 47 years or longer I can get a new one from BMW if I ever need one.
Besides, what's the NPV on a replacement 20-30 years in the future vs. the cost of a duplicate now?
