Get a real LSD. The phantom grip will never come close to a real LSD. And you can pick up a S4 lsd that will drop right into any n/a for cheap.

Where could you find an S4 oem LSD at and cheap, I figured they would be expensive. I hope its not in a junk yard.

They pop up in the for sale section from time to time, or you could, god forbid, go junkyard shopping.



All of the miata LSD units fit in the n/a diff, so you have that torsen available, but good luck finding them. Personally, Im not a fan of the torsen anyways. My favorite was the clutch type, than can be found in any S4 that has LSD. Also, the 1st gens with LSD also use the same LSD unit as the n/a FC and miata.



edit: and if you are just itching to spend too much money for a new one, you can get it through the dealer, or mazdatrix, or mazdacomp if you have an account.
