Which of the following LSD make sense for a 1973 2002tii


Recommended Posts

but first you need to tell us what your tansmission is ?

4 speed, or 5-speed ? , and where will you drive most of the time?

otherwise, what MPH does your car live at 80% of the time:

3:45 = "tall" for Autobahn/Autostrada/Daytona banking

2002 Turbo, needs 160+ HP to really use this 'top-end' ratio

sluggish acceleration

3.64 = "allround" for any conditions - somewhat good for

acceleration, and nice highway cruising. Excellent 'average'

ratio for quieter highway, tad better MPG's, loose some

on acceleration.

3.91 = "short" gear for Lime Rock, realworld city driving,

best of the 3 for quick acceleration, lowest MPG if your

worried about such things. Many squids here just want a banG

in thir back when thay HIT the gas! this is the ratio for dat.

IF your tii runs like a TII - then 3.64:1 or 3.45:1 are for you

but if your tii runs like a 2002 - better go with the 3.91:1 to help

the poor thing keep up with the YUGO's

so again? - where & how do you intend on driving ?


use the 3.45:1 here -=>


'86 R65 650cc #6128390 22,000m
'64 R27 250cc #383851 18,000m
'11 FORD Transit #T058971 28,000m "Truckette"
'13 500 ABARTH #DT600282 6,666m "TAZIO"

City and highway driving- No concerns about MPG - Yes it has a four speed on it but I have a 5 speed (dog leg) waiting for me to decide whether to install.

Thanks for your opinion

dogleg changes the equation as its 1:1 5th gear. go with a 3.45 in that case. thats what i have in my M2 and its nice

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
