    I need a clutch type lsd for ice racing. It's terribly difficult to decipher 1 what cars had clutch type LSDs. And 2 which ones will fit in my trans.

    What I have been able to find is that B18C differentials will not work as they have a different bolt pattern for the ring gear.

    OK so after some more sifting through BS. What I have found is that although some sources said there were Clutch type LSDs offed stock this is not true. Apparently the majority of LSDs were torsen with some viscous as well.

    Also I have found that the only differential that is the same as my b16 diff is the Integra LS diff which is open as well. Sounds like my only option is after market which is way too much money. I think I will be finding another diff and welding it for my purposes.

    Right... b16 and ls are your choices that interchange.

    I forget the name of the product now... but there was a poor mans semi lsd / semi welded diff on the market a few years back for a couple hundred bucks

    phantom grip, yes. that's what i was thinking of. it may be the 'better' alternative to welding the diff.
