Wade wrote:I also dropped past harrop for one of there diff covers. I’ve ordered a full 3” exhaust system from empire as well. Keen to comparing the empire exhaust to the difilippo one I have here. On paper they both have the same specs, so will be good to do a comparison between the 2. There’s a huge price difference between both systems so hopefully the empire system stacks up. Also a little worried about the fitment and clearance mainly around the diff cover area, as the harrop cover sits out a fair bit more


Have a look on YouTube for a channel called Banks Power. He's a blower/diesel guy predominantly but he's currently doing a series of videos about aftermarket diff covers and is very interesting. He's doing actual testing rather than just a marketing speel...

I’d like to go a Eaton truetrac with 3.9 gears and also do the front diff mount anti tramp bushes as well. I don’t really think heat will be an issue with the diff. I only plan on daily driving it and sometimes hitting the quarter mile. The harrop diff cover is also supposed to be machinable for a diff cooler if need be as well.

Exhaust finally arrived as well. I’ll wait till it’s all fitted before giving my opinion on quality. So far for the price I’m pretty happy with it

Well exhaust fitted up ok and so far no issues. It is a little louder then the difilippo one but very similar

Those exhausts are great value for money over most other brands.

That hot wheels track in the back ground looks awesome :thumbup:
