Watch those diff bushings.   I'd look into solid ones if you plan to put big power through that rearend.   There are issues with the diff pulling through rubber bushings and either coming loose, or breaking the diff housing.

Pete, broke the ears off of his dif housing Sunday..ate the driveshaft also.

Im making 378whp. No wheel hop with a 2700 rpm launch. I would say it was a real quick slip of the clutch and at about the 60' mark it let go. Nitto NTO5R drag radials on a prepped track with a few dry hops. No real burnout.
