Quaife, Kaaz and Cusco are all well-respected companies which make an LSD for the 3. I personally have a Quaife and love it. Tigermack is planning on getting a Kaaz. I don't know anyone with the Cusco... they make awesome stuff, but Tri-Point did do some testing with it and preferred the Quaife in our car for street use.

As far as the install... it's not easy. I had it installed by professionals with lots of experience working on transmissions. I believe there was a little machining of the selector fork involved to make it fit perfectly.

Can the Quaife LSD be using on a 4-speed auto or is for the manual only?

I bought it from Tri-Point and had them install it at the same time as my kit, so I'm not sure how much the install would run normally. Give them a call and chat about it if you're thinking of getting one with your kit too.

Last I saw the quaife was about $1300 just for the part - gotta figure at least $400 for the install.


Edit: Just found it on the corksport website for $1651, but they have always been kinda pricey. Not that $1300 is cheap, but I'm sure if you shop around you can find one for that price.
