View Full Version : Evo - VR4 Diff ratios

17-05-02, 10:59 AM
Basically, I want a rear limo for my VR4. Does anyone know if the centre's from EVO lancers have the same ratio & will they will fit or can the whole diff be swapped. What other alternatives are there, I dont want a cig locker. I know that the eclipse rear ends will fit buy buying stuff from the states doesn't seem like the best option. Any idea's, thoughts?

The Evo final drive is lower than the Vr4.
Evo 3 is about 5.3 vs 4.9 for the Vr4.

Thanks James, I thought that was the case. :( I really dont have many options then do I?

You could use Evo 3's gear ratios but still using your VR4's 4.9 final drive. However, the first gear is taller for the Evo 3 and the rest are a little shorter than VR4.

Wira - I want a rear limited slip diff without changing ratios anywhere.

Is changing both front and rear centers to EVO items not an option?
Spose ya don't want the added $$$ and shorter gearing hey...

Btw that dude with the white VR4 had said to our faces (SLrocket and I) that he had run a 12.7.......spose he knew he couldn't bullshit ya :)

12.7 is a believable time with that turbo if everything else is sorted, maybe even faster - pity he hasn't finished it & run the times. If that Link was tuned, it would be a real weapon! :cool:

I have the same fuel cut probs as him, I'm just attacking it from a different angle (Read:cant afford that sort of money) I would like to chat with whoever gets it though, maybe swap them some bits of they think its too laggy... :rolleyes: :p

One of the guys on the VR4 forum suggested that the LSD bit can be retrofitted to my current diff, I hope it checks out.
