hey,i didnt want to start another thread since i found this one but,is there a way i can visually see if the 8.8 i bought is a frpp unit? i popped the cover and didnt think to check the wear pattern and already sealed it up and added the fluids but when i had it off the teeth didnt look damaged at all. the gears in it had 3.73 stamped into it along with the ford logo,so the more i think about it the more i suspect it might be the frpp diff.
I got it from a guy off ebay who said he got it out of a supercoupe,so i guess either the people who owned the sc got a mark case and put the gears and traction lok in it,or they had the frpp one installed,if there is a way to tell visually ill get some pictures of it for you guys,thanks
Ford Racing sells an empty aluminum carrier for an IRS now... You can buy pretty much everything you need from Ford Racing and choose your own gear ratio. All you have to do is install them or have someone capable of doing the job...

Just how much lighter is the aluminum case? I just put the t-loc from the LE in the GT(LX) and was once again amazed at how heavy those mothers are. Sure would like to save some weight if its significant.
