What final drive ratio would you recommend with new LSD ? Lots of spirited driving but also occasional autocross.

Those who have had their diffs replaced with any LSD how noticeable was the change? In other words in spirited driving did you notice it or just on a closed track or course? Like autocross.

Only gripe I have is they are overpriced. Looking at an 06 Miata with 150k miles. They are asking $6999. Another one an 08 with 95k miles they are asking $9999. To much I think.
