    the cheap ones just lock the spider gears... so all they are really any good for is straight line
    not too sure how much power they will hold though
    the real ones will obviously be better

    im not into drag racing so someone else will have to help you out here :)

    If this is going to be a dedicated track car then weld your differential. Keep in mind that this makes your car totally unstreetable.

    Keep far away from Phantom Grip. If you decide on PG, toss that idea out the window and just weld the diff as Cash suggested. Same result, no cost.

    Not to thread jack, but what will make the difference between the two setups?

    I've heard nothing but good things about Quaiffe LSDs, and I'll be into both straight line performance and autocrossing eventually. I'd like to get the best of both worlds.

    I have a Y1 XSI tranny with no factory limited slip, I was burning my right tire down to a slick every 3 months. I shilled out the what was it 900 or something? So far that was the best upgrade next to the motor swap i have done for that car. Someone told me that after a few years the quaffie will eat your differential but who cares.
