... if you have a 90 V8Q you have an automatic tranny ... which does not have
a torsen center diff. I believe that it actually uses a computer controlled
clutch arrangement. I was checking out the fiche for the v8q the other night,
looking to see if the center diff was listed separately. Whereas the MT shows
an exploded diagram including P/Ns of the tranny and diff (torsen) the slush
box is a single unit. Anyone been inside it? ... you know, the inquiring
minds thing ...
All V8Qs have a torsen in the rear diff ...
