Just wanted to share my experience after installing the Quaife LSD

Improved cornering
Power delivered to wheels improving straight line acceleration..
Rain - I am driving like how i drive in summer.. what a change and fun to drive..

What more.. 0-60 is now 3.92s

Next is the RB's / Big Brakes / KW v3

I will end it there..

Hey Booyaazaa, installation is very straight forward, removing the diff from the car & putting it back takes around two hours, and installing the actual differential into the case will take around one hour. Shimming is not needed when installing the Quaife, as it is a 1:1 compared to the original.

The product itself is expensive comes around $1300 including tax, installation is around $1000 dollars including the differential fluid filling.. Worth the money though

Very Nice.
Where'd you get the diff from?
What's you MPG look like now? (I know you have a 335, I am just curious as a "ratio" type number)

Birds auto..

The MPG depends on the driving style.. With E85 30%+ you cannot expect to cross 18mpg in city..

Highways you can cross 20..

But with a 93 premium i was consistently getting 21 within city and 26+ highway

That is so fast for our cars! I was wondering what tires you run to get all the power down?
