6 years I've been waiting for this moment. 6 fucking years. I finally got my paws on a Tomei 2-Way for the Z33, along with some 3.9 Final Drive Gears which will boost my acceleration and response....perfect for getting sideways.
I took the diff apart because I originally wanted to restack the clutch plates so that it wouldn't be at 100% lock, but after considering it I just left it alone in the order the plates came from Tomei, and decided to get some cool photos while it was all disassembled. Enjoy, 武士道 - B U S H I D O!
The housing resting on the pinion gear from the 3.9 FD gear set.
Housing removed, and springs, plates, pressure rings, side gears, spider gears, and pinions all still in place.
A bit closer.

Spider gears waiting to do their job.
The internals of this thing are so precise and beautiful. I don't feel one bit of resentment on what I spent for this piece.
And all of the clutch plates laid out in their original order from Tomei.
