    I had it on my gsr motor. it was awesome. make sure you get the 98+ spec tranny though. better final drive and better 4th and 5th gear ratios (the newer 98+ has a 4.75 final and short gear ratios for 4 and 5 and the 96-97 has a 4.4 final drive with the same 4 and 5 as the gsr). The older tranny is good if you want fuel economy but if you want great acceleration, go for the newer. the lsd will greatly improve your launches too. instead of doing the standard honda 1 wheel burn out, you can get both wheels to spin. And when launching, both wheels will equally grip the track and give you better 60 ft times. It will also help in the twisties. When one wheel starts to slip the lsd transfers power to the wheel that is gripping in order to regain traction on the slipping wheel. Also, with a itr tranny on my gsr I was able to hit 150 mph in 5th with about 3k rpms left (and that was on a stock motor). So do it and enjoy. You will have an advantage over most other gsr's (even if they are slightly more modded than you).

    Um, both accelrate wel, and the milage per gallons isn't going to be different enough. And only the Japanese versions had the 4.785 final drive, the US ones had the 4.400.
