    A rebuild will most likly be cheaper and last longer than you going out and getting a newer one. Rebuilds very in price depending on your location.

    for LSD depends on what the car will be used for.
    drag - quaiffe
    road race - kaaz 1.5 way
    cheap - ITR

    Just to know, why Kaaz 1.5 way for road race? Doesnt the Quaiffe also help cornering? Just asking not to start argument or anything

    do a search for synchors pricing,,,since it's 2-3 it shoudln't be that bad if you do the labor to take your tranny out and send it...


    I think like 200 bucks...

    i would use a quaiffe for everything.

    why? it has a lifetime guarantee.

    kazz doesn't.

    and thats all i have to say about that

    its really unnoticable for normal driving. it only activates when one wheel slips, or another wheel is going faster than the other.

    I am going to disagree with that

    kaaz would be better for drag/burn outs because it is a clutch type diff

    quaiffe would be better for road racing because it is a "torque biasing diff" not truly a limited slip

    long story short.....
    clutch lsd's will make both your wheels spin at the exact same speed and this will make cornering more difficult than with a helical gear diff like quaiffe. but helical diffs won't work if there isn't some ammount of load on each wheel (like if one wheel is off the ground or on ice)

    I would go with quaiffe because of the warranty and overall better drivability for cornering and such. I bought my tranny with an OEM lsd in it.

    Go ask a dealer. I rebuilt the synchros in my transmission for about $160, straight from the dealer. I had to replace the same 2-3 synchronizer set (USDM ITR parts) that you're looking for.

    go to any road race track, ask the people who really race their cars on the road course which they would perfer, kaaz or quaiffe. i posted that by what the experienced people who run honda challenge use, they all use kaaz. those that have used quaifee on the road course have ditched them. i used to be a big fan of quaiffe, but after speaking to many of the guys running honda challenge, they have all said to stay away from quaiffe.
