Hi
I've just opened up my front transfer box, to find a open diff unit.
The car is a tme, is has a tme gearbox and history of being changed.
But nothing said about the transfer case.
What am I needing to measure to determine if it's a tme transfer case?, I've heard cwp is different and also the bearings are also different to a gsr and that an lsd (quaife atb I plan to run) will not fit in the tme case.
Hoping that someone has just put a open diff in the tme case.

Any info much appreciated

Mitsubishi made a number of different types of transfer case for the 4/5/6, with different size internals as well as the TME one. That case design with the two holes on the cover looks like an early 4/5/6 case.
The only TME cases I've seen have this style of cover:


but I'm not sure that all cases of this style will be TME ones.

I suspect the OP's original transfer box failed and was replaced by one from a 4.

The easy way to tell a TME box is that the LSD diff pack will have cap head hex bolts as opposed to countersunk ones.

Cheers,

Simon

I confirm the case on my tme is as Simon's (and mine is a 100% Evo 6 tme). Never had transfer box change or anything. It has these 2 threaded "ears" at the bottom which were really too close to my exhaust:



Of course what's inside could be different but I assure you this is the transfer box originally fitted on my Evo 6 tme.
