I was just wondering about this, I have not read anything about this to let me know what it is. Is this a cheap way to get a "posi" type of diff or what? Let me know what it is, and if you like it. Thank you.

Re: Question about Peliquin 80%.. (autocross16vrocco)

Its a shim kit that increases the preload on the drive flanges. I like mine. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

it is a very cheap way before you take the next step to buy a differential
it is not, by far, the same as using a differential

It makes a very big difference from stock. Less push when powering thru turns, better tracion in the snow, better overall road feel. There's not much reason not to get one.

I think they come with new drive flange seal. Have some blue loc-tite before you start. Have some snap ring pliers 'cause that makes it all go easy!

Re: Question about Peliquin 80%.. (Two-Point-Oh16V)

anyone have a write up on how to install it properly.. and what size axles do our 16vs have? 90 or 100mm. If it is 90 can you still go with the 80%?

go to this link http://www.peloquins.com/ there is a write up about it. if you get the kit, it has good directions that are easy to read. also go to thescirocco.com...there is a nice explanation about the kit.
no you can't use the 80% kit with the 90mm axles, for the 90mm axles you have to go with a 40%. Its easy you just have to leave out a few parts. I plan to go to 100mm axles later. Buy the 80% kit its only $88 bucks shipped if you go though thescirocco.com http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif and if you do expexct great service and fast shipping

Just get a set of 100mm flanges, you have to take the old flanges off anyway, so you can just put the 100mm flanges on at the same time.

Re: Question about Peliquin 80%.. (kervin)

If you get bigger flanges, do you have to change anything else to work with this?

Re: Question about Peliquin 80%.. (Rankin)

You need the same sized inner cv joints. 100mm cvs if you're using 100mm drive flanges.

Re: (mattressmac)

It all depends on how long you drive...they guy who makes them says to change just the brass shims every 30k miles or so. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I got a set on mine, and its nice, less torque steer as well to improved grip in wet and turns.
as for changing the shims I think it all depends on how hard you drive your car.
