Altezza Diff Into Is200


Recommended Posts

I read on another forum somewhere that apparently the shafts coming out of the diff on the is200 have 4 bolt holes whereas the altezza has 6...?

Can anybody confirm this?

Im basically just wanting a straight swap over and am wondering if there is anything extra involved...?

Thanks.

I don't know, but bear in mind that the Altezza is not just one model, e.g. there is the AS200 with the same engine as the IS200, and then there's the RS200 with the 3S-GE engine. And also manual versus automatic transmissions (don't know if that makes a difference to the diff).

Yes you are correct...

A few points to keep in mind ...

Manual RS200 up to 2002 (changed mid to late 2001 apparently) have a Torsion diff with a 4.1 final drive, 2002 have a 4.3 final drive...

Auto (5speed) only got a LSD as an optional extra!

Monster Mat is the expert on here regarding whats involved and has alot of posts up about the likes over the years ... be worth your while searching through the old threads...

Arent the RS200, AS200 and Altezza all badged with the actual model they are...?

The RS200 and AS200 are the main two variants of the Altezza. There is also the AS300 (estate).

My point was that you may need to check a lot more detail just than whether it comes out of an Altezza, i.e. which model of Altezza with which transmission.
