Version 3 spool,pick yourself up an FRP rear plate too.Other then that and possibly updating the shock towers to the WCE style tower that were on the Andy Moore, the new stil diff and that should do it.The evolution of the car has been small updates.But in reality you could run it the way you bought it and be competitive.

The shock towers have more adjustments.The FRP plate takes the place of the carbon cross brace in the rear that holds the center shaft/spur assembly into the bulkhead and cross brace for the center of the car.The inboard camber links on the older editions offer the same adjustments as the newest version cyclone.When I wrote stil diff,that was a typo/correction error on my part.The new diff from the TC version is what your looking for.If you decide to go this way,then you will also need to buy the new center pulleys and front and rear belts and new oneway/spool front Pulley that comes in the TC.HTH

Why do you need all new belts and pulleys for the pro-diff? I thought only the center pulleys were different (18 vs 16) and the new belts are a few teeth longer.

Your correct only center pulleys have 2 sizes - 18 and 16 teeth, diff/spool pulleys have exact teeth count in any version. So no belt change if you change diff.
