A completely exclusive experiment was performed by the INDRA collaboration to study the isospin dependence of the level density parameter. Over a large N/Z range, the fusion-evaporation charged products of 34,36,40Ar+58,60,64Ni reactions were measured and identified both in charge and mass by coupling INDRA and VAMOS spectrometer. Preliminary results obtained by combining data of both detectors are presented for the 36Ar+58Ni at 13.3 A MeV. The analysis method of relevant observables for such an ambitious investigation are discussed and the progress of the data analysis are reviewed.
