Default How to turn my 6mt to RWD/FWD??

Hey guys. I need to turn my car into a 2wd vehicle to dyno here in town and have heard you cannot use the regular center diff welding trick to turn it rwd in a 6mt. Anybody know how to do this?

As near as I can tell, Saker has a part to make it FWD for less than $250.

We have a RWD spool for the 5-speed and for the 6 speed. They are $460 for the 5-speed, and $460 for the 6-speed. Both are made by PPG, so you don't have to worry about welds breaking or anything like that. Both are machined out of solid billet.

We've got the 5-speeds in stock, and I'll have the 6-speeds here very soon.

Let me know if you want one, and i'll get a 6-speed one out to you ASAP.

Sure? I know its bad on a non-dccd tranny becase the diff is constantly trying to stop the front wheels, but I thought dccd trannys release the rear wheels for the ebrake? Could still be bad for it...

actuating the e brake merely unlocks the center diff. no "disconnection" of drive torque takes place.

in a 5mt, or any car with an lsd non dccd center, you're right. in all other cases (open CD, DCCD) it's fine.
