Nice, so works on the 86 turbo?

Worth buying a pair to have just in case.

We need a stickied thread with some of this cross-referenced stuff.

These axles, the BMW reference sensors, the VW visor clips, etc.

If they are hollow, they'll snap on your first real wheel-hop with your V8 implant. The Empi Type 2 CV's make the axle the weak point.

cheap enough to cut one up to check?

If it can handle the low end torque a V8 provides then it would be perfectly fine with a high HP Turbo.

Premium quality Moly grease used on all joints

From what robstah was saying on saturday is that they look like a quality piece.

Just weigh it. Or pull both CV's and you'll be able to tell right away.

Just dump the clutch a few times; easiest and most fun way to test your new axles.
