Do they all have the Prodrive machined out of them or (based on some of the plates in your pics) can you supply them with STi machined out, or is that a plate that bolts on?

Cheers

not with the brackets supplied they are designed for the 6 speed. but its just the rear bracket that is different I believe as the bolts on back of diff are closer together.

fitted mine today on a R180 diff - doesn't look bad at all, just trimmed 5mm off the middle rear allen head bolt so it doesn't rub against the drain plug casting.

Any chance you can lay your hands on the bolt pattern for a 5 speed newage diff and fabricate the brackets to match fella? that kinda thing is beyond me, have enough bother doing a 6 piece jigsaw lol would snap one up if that was the case coz they look as good as the genuine ones once their painted/lacquered

best way is a hypodermic syringe. but I just filled with paint using kids paintbrush then polish face with wet and dry and then autosol.
don't worry about overpaint on face as polish flat with wet and dry.
