Re: 3.91 Diff swap question - E53 X5 4.8is

E34 M5 and E39 M5 indeed use the 210mm large case, albeit a clutch type limited slip, and the gears are interchangeable with the E46 M3 large case.

Re: 3.91 Diff swap question - E53 X5 4.8is

I think the ring gear mounting bolts are different. If memory serves me, the M3 uses a 14mm bolt and some other 210mm case ring gears are 12mm.




Are these the medium case 188mm diff?

Re: 4.10 Gearset with ZF 5-Speed at quick tracks

Redline is 8,200 through EPIC tune so per DiffsOnLine.com differential gearing worksheet, the theoretical speed is about 153. OK if speedo is wrong, it makes me smile.

If you find some 3.91 but prefer the 4.10. I'll swap my 4.10 to you.

Re: Track Oil change interval

I change my oil (Total Quartz synthetic 10W-60) every second race/track event. It's probably overkill, but then again an engine rebuild isn't cheap.
