    i'm trying to build my tranny but i dont have a ton of money to spend on it,....doing some research i found this guy that sales this lsd kit that costs around $190. i've seen others that look completely different and go for double that price. here is the link eBay Motors: LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL KIT LSD INTEGRA GSR PRELUDE (item 170199486653 end time Mar-10-08 22:02:19 PDT)
    is this LSD reliable? i emailed the guy to ask him if this was a kit that locks both wheels all the time and this is what he replied to me,... [FONT=arial,sans-serif]"The unit acts like a 2 way lsd unit. giving you traction. it will not lock up(like a welded diff) around corners but will give traction"
    so i thought why spend double the price on a lsd differential if i can get this instead and save money? any suggestions? past experiences? Thanks!

    Looks cheap. Would most likely break under moderate to high loads. What he was trying to explain to you is that when you "weld" a differential, both wheels spin simultaneously in the same direction giving you great traction, but terrible for turning and cornering. If you were to try and make a left or a right turn, the wheels would fight against eachother and lock up causing skidding. I know first hand, I welded one of my d-series differentials :thumbsup: LSD works a little different. One wheel has a forward rotation, and the next wheel has the opposite rotation keeping a balance. When one wheel loses traction, the other compensates by slowing it down.

    Just buy a decent LSD. The labor/swap isnt cheap, so do it right the first time and you will be happy with the results. Quaife is good, phantom-grip is junk. OEM LSD's work pretty well in my past experiences with them.
