    having an LSD is always better than not having one

    Yes, but if it was, you can make it work in another D series transmission without too many problems.

    can you elaborate?

    what .....

    ok, can you break down the "lsd" concept and what exact parts it requires and a real simple "how to" to install on the stock d series tranny?


    just curious :D

    No, I can't break it down because I've never sat down and tried, and I haven't made a thorough examination of a ZC and non-ZC transmission side by side.

    :p

    But here we go:

    1. Remove transmission from car
    2. Open transmission
    3. Cuss a bit
    4. Really open transmission this time
    5. Pull all your gears, keep them together
    6. Open up donor transmission
    7. Pull gears, throw them all over the place
    8. Pull LSD
    9. Look at LSD, look at stock diff
    10. Cuss some more
    11. Walk to nearest dark alley
    12. Buy your favorite collection of "special stamps", or a vial of straight liquid if you're brave
    13. Go back home
    14. Insert stamps / dropper into mouth
    15. Insert stamps / dropper into old transmission
    16. Reinstall transmission into car

    You now have LSD in your stock transmission. :lol:

    Seriously though, I'm not sure what exactly needs to be done- but I think it has to do with the cups mounted on the sides of the differential. The DOHC ZC diff uses a different cup setup so that it can run the intermediate shaft, while the other transmissions don't. I think that's the only difference. According to "Mista Bone" all the D series differentials use the same ring gear bolt pattern, so you can even swap final drives around if you want- just make sure you use the proper counter shaft when you change differentials / final drive ring gears.

    That doesn't help any, as they are steps required when working on any honda, and the more times they are repeated, the better. :lol: :D

    Exactly- but it's still a step by step how-to, so they must be in there.

    :lol:
