Mk5 Cortina Rear Axle upgrade

Recommended Posts

Evening All. 

My Mk5 cortina estate running Rover V8

what are my options for the rear axle upgrade. 

Would I be better off leaving it standard and doing a disc conversion or upgrade complete rear axle - if so what too?? 

Any help appreciated.

My 2,9 Mk3 (190 @ the wheels) used to have a 2.4 YB engine, 265 brake, with NOS well in excess of 300, it has a Mk5 Atlas with Capri 2.8 LSD and fostec half-shafts, it was doing 13.1 quarters with 3000 - rpm starts on a ceramic clutch, never had an issue and still runs well so up-rated Atlas would be fine!
