would it be bad to use a chevy transfer case behind an ej tranny? i came across one for cheap, and i have never seen a samuri, and its only a bit bigger than my toyota one, but its cast iron...
should i keep looking or use this one?

what did it come out of?

what's the ratio on the low range? or maybe if you can find the model # we could figure it out!

it will be way more than you will ever need, or subaru diffs and axles could ever take. Use it if you want, but you will have another 75 pounds and a few less inches of clearance underneath that dont have to be there.

Well the old Cast Iron chevy cases were I would guess either an NP 205, or an NP 203.

The 205 is vertually indestructable , even running with big block motors, so it would be over kill for your suby. The 203 is a chain driven unit, and it too is a pretty stout unit.

The 205 low reange is only like 1.9:1 so it really wouldn't be benificial to mate it up. The 203 is a little better at like 2.2:1. Now one thing to check for on the 203 is to make sure it has the part time kit installed in it. Most 203's were a full time x-fer case and might be trouble for the subes. I am not sure though.

yeah the 205 are heavy mofo's almost.. bullet proof i did break one .. so thats why i say almost

one tiny problem tho...
all teh chevy t cases well most tcases infact the front drive output is offset
instead of centered like a datsun tcase..
so that might be a problem

If it is out of an S-10 it is probably a "New Venture 233" It has an aluminum case and weighs 74 pounds. It has a 2.76 ratio. If you could work the driveshaft problems out it might make a good candidate for a T-case job. I think they are made with a variety of outputs, so it would have to be done on a "case by case" basis (no pun intended ;) )
