Gro has a gear driven diff. Same basic product as a quaife, but Quaife is a manufacturer of gear driven diffs, Gro has a different brand.

Hi
We have just bought 2 Quaife LSD from UK, we will complete installation within the next weeks, currently we have taken 1 gearbox apart, but we are missing an installation kit with bolts from Quaife to complete installation, this is an task that is for experienced Mazda mechanics, I don't say you can't do it, I just tell it is NOT easy.

There isen't any, it is samplet with - don't know if it is the right word - fastners, do you know what I mean, you drill them out and then you bolt the Quaife on with 11,25-11,3mm bolt's and nuts from ARP.
Ford & Mazda hasen't anything in EU for this and Mazda Europe won't talk with MazdaSpeed Or MazdaMotor as their products is not approved anywhere in the EU.
(%(%(=%¤#$$€][]\ - DAMN !!
We have two options - one is to buy from an ARP or Quaife dealer or make the Bolts & Nuts Locally, think it will be the last thing..

Got one. Definetly worth every penny for track and SoloII racing + unlimited lifetime garantee. Need to drill out the rivets holding the ring gear to the OEM open diff, transfer the ring gear and speedo gears to the Quaife + new set of bearings. Bolts/Studs kit is required to attach the ring gear to the LSD. Shift selector bracket in the transmission needs to be grinded to clear the heads of the bolts/studs (heads of the original rivets were thinner).

PATDIESEL: Make sure you have appointments scheduled with your dentist and chiropractor on your way back. Teeth fillings and lower back will need some work. Also do not foget ear plugs, your brain would buzz for a month without them.

Luke, I'm sure it will be more than worth the pain and effort of listening to your super bad-ass car rattle, clunk and exhaust blare down the road... :D
