Alex,I don't know if GM used under car turbulence to help keep the rear-end lube from cooking.The exhaust passes so close to the housing,I would be a bit skittish about really sealing that area up.Do you have a way to monitor the gear oil temp from the cabin? If not,would it be a good idea to epoxy a thermo-couple from a remote digital thermometer to the housing and keep an eye on that? I like what your up to,but it would really suck if the DeDion went south on you.
