I have a R200 VLSD, which I think is an R200V, with the 6-bolt pattern. Anyways, what output shafts do I need to use to put a Nismo 2-way R200 clutch-type differential from an R33 GTR. And I think the gear ratio is 4.36. I can get this diff for very cheap.

I'm still searching the net but hopefully you guys know.

Thanks

Ok, so far what I've gathered is I could use the 5-bolt output shafts and half-shafts from either a 180sx or pre-95 J30.

Can anyone verify?

A stock R32 or R33 GT-R's final gear ratio is 4.11

There are about 1000 types of R200 diffs. From the info that you provided, one thing could drastically change what you need.

The R33 GT-R diff has a 4.11 ratio and will have output shafts with 6 split bolts (6x1) like what you get on a Z32TT's R230 diff or Q45 R200. If you have these, there are 6 bolt (3x2) output shafts that you can use, but they're the 30-spline type from the kouki S14 (JDM only) R200V and S15 (Spec-S) R200V. None of the common 29-spline output shafts will work. Because it's R33, it'll have the isolated front mounting tabs and S14-style rear cover.

The 4.36 ratio diffs came in the GTS-T Skylines. They'll have either 5-bolt or 6-bolt (3x2) output shafts. One thing to note about these is that they use 13mm ring gear bolts, as opposed to the 12mm bolts that are commonly used in the US diffs. So, don't expect to go swapping guts around.

So, what diff do you have again?
