I have a very standard 100k miles Cup in good condition, still on original clutch etc. I am seriously thinking about getting Autolusso to put in a Quaife plus new clutch and single mass flywheel. I appreciate these are good modifications from a trusted supplier and would have no hesitation in putting them in a standard 3lt, but when it comes to the Cup I am just wondering, will it detract and impact re-sale value. What do people think?

I can't imagine that anyone would object to a quaife in there - you can't tell by inspection, and can only feel it when driving hard - and it then makes a big difference. You can keep the old diff in a box so that some future owner could re-fit it if they were obsessive.

I agree. Debatable if you need a LSD in a road car tho. If it ain't broke etc.
The V6 needs the LSD in my opinion. I've got top quality newish tyres and I feel mine working several times each day in the wet and not just when I'm pressing on either - the traction accelerating out of corners would be comical without it.

Thanks, the possibility of my diff going bang has been on my mind. I guess the Quaife is a no-brainer value add "modification", perhaps I am more worried about the lighter flywheel. Anyway think I will go for the package.

Why would you be worried about a lighter flywheel??

GTA clutch and flywheel, Quaife diff are an absolute must have on any V6 GTV

Hi Ned,

Not a technical one for sure, just one about how others will feel about this "modification" to a limited edition car. As you know some of the value is driven by collectors who obsess about originality; now while the Quaife is better and protects against a known issue, the flywheel change is perhaps more optional and more likely to change how the car feels to drive. So that was why I was thinking and asking, in my own mind I have decided, but wanted the "look before I leap" and at the end of the day it is my car for me to drive :)

I don't think it can be looked at negatively, it's not like you are doing something like sticking a big chavy body kit and tinting the windows

Mods like that won't affect the value of your car. Things like provenance, condition and mileage will. It will make the car handle better and I can't see any collector nailing you over a diff? If you got a bit too active with paint and chrome in the engine bay and changed the seats then you'd have a problem...

I bought my first GTV V6 2 weeks ago and I was thinking about a quaife modification. What would be the estimated cost to fit on its own and then in combination with GTA clutch and flywheel?

thanks! :thumbup:
