    Got home eventually on Friday and had my brother waiting for me at my house . He was there to tell me some bad news that our father has taken ill and there is not much time left . So my father has my unadulterated attention . So the testing my job and anything else has to go on the back burner . I'm sorry guys but as we all have fathers u know how important family is . With this been so unexpected I'm telling everyone I love that I love them . I hope all goes well and I'll b back when I've pulled my headout of my arse .

    I have one thats in pieces, are you after just the threaded bolt part or the whole controller?
    If you dont have much luck finding one on your side of the world, I can post it to you.

    I just have to wait for the gaskets and longer bolts

    The part above is made out of 316 stainless steel so it won't rust under the car

    As soon as the bolts and gaskets have come they will be sent out to Gops

    One quick question regarding this. The standard controller and the upgrades have an over ride protection function to allow it to go back to front wheel drive only, if the oil temp get too high. Andrew, With this insert I gather this will protection will no longer work?

    It's also possible to put a switch to cut the power to the haldex
