I'm looking for a divorsed transfer case for my cruiser buggy.
I'm trying to run nothing but Toyota parts and if it cant be toyota i dont want a boat anchor like a 205. I also need to get at least 4:1 low range and being able to get front wheel drive only would be great but not a must, needs to hold 400hp and abuse. Offset and offset or offset and center works. I'm running custom housings with flipped thirds so i have some decent wiggle room there.
My known options:
Np205 - too heavy and i can only go down to 3:1 with a lowmax kit
Dana 300 - I believe this is an option but I'm not sure
Atlas - would solve a lot of issues but I'm really not looking to drop 3k on a case.
Toyota mini truck gear driven with inchworm adapter - it won't hold the power

Other then that I'm drawing a blank
if you have any suggestions please let me know.

:meh: You want strength and low weight and low cost. Sort of paints you into a corner.

4:1 kits are available for Dana 300

Really old Rockwell cases come to mind, but probably just as heavy as a 205. An rare as hens teeth.

I agree with you. I don't "need" light weight, I just want to be lighter than a 205 which is pretty much anything.
I have a Dana 300 sitting in the shop and if JB Conversions would come thru with a 4:1 kit I'd do that. Like I said I'd like to stay toyota, I have no issue machining an adapter for a married case to make it a divorced case. I'm trying to be somewhat different in the whole thing. I'll buy an atlas before I build a 300 anyway.

My goal is to find a toyota case.....maybe an odd ball case and make it work, this is a difficult thing to do that's why I decided to post on this forum instead of another. I'm by no means a newb to the scene I'm just drawing a blank on this and need some opinions

I'm not afraid of spending money, after all this is a race rig and my shop rig and racing isn't cheap. If i spend the money I want it to be a unique setup

Hi All:

Why do you need a "divorced" t-case? What is the wheelbase on this buggy you are building??

There are not that many "divorced" t-cases available; I'd imagine that the only ones readily available in North America would be New Process (NP) models.

Regards,

Alan

Running a rear mounted 2jz with the factory auto. I don't want to run a Turbo 400 so i need a divorced case.
Wheelbase will be around 110"
