Exclamation Lsd *help* Lsd

Hello everyone:

I am looking forward to find an LSD for my 98 GSR B18c.
It seems like I have no options with these crazy prices..

I saw an offer of OBX LSD on ebay priced at about $350 USD.

Does anyone have an idea if its worth the money?


Description:

For sale is a new OBX Helical limited slip differential.
The helical limited slip differential is a torque sensing LSD that features smoothing operation and superior responsiveness.
The unit does not require special oil like the clutch type limited slip differentials.
Part # LSD9000
This is a perfect upgrade for street and race use!

Fitment:
90-93 Integra RS/LS/GS/GSR (DA6)
94 - 2001 Integra RS/LS/GS (DC2)
Utilizes / Specs:
Weight: 11 pounds

It seems like other makers like

http://www.quaifeamerica.com/ , http://www.kaazusa.com/products/products.htm

are way-2-expensive.

Thank You
You may PM me or post here.

obx is a very no name brand if ur looking to drop money and putting and lsd into your transmission stick with quaife or kaaz u pay for quality. Obx i wouldnt trust in my transmission i would save and go to a higher end unit. Stay away from obx

^^^^agreed 100%
There is a reason why limited slip diff's cost so much. If its a budget lsd ur after use a ITR lsd.

I knoe of two ppl one guy from tsr turbo d series running high 12's with the OBX lsd ( Helical ) and another guy with a 92 or 93 gs-r teggy both have the OBX. Both have no complaints, and if Im not mistaken ( Helical ) type lsd's are usually cheaper then the clutch setup one?

salwan7 my advice to u is go on other forums ask arround about OBX, ask who has one cuz the only opinion worth taking is from someone who owns one.

That's a deal and a half! Clutch type 1.5way, right?

While we are on LSD topic, anyone knows what is a decent transmission fluid for a tranny + clutch type LSD? Mix use between daily driving and track racing.

Thanks so much for the opinions.

The problem is, most people who say go with Quaife don't even have LSD on their car. But you hear and you follow, and I was once thought about buying Quaife.

But now I use clutch type LSD.

Yeah I have also heard the OBX is pretty much identical to the Quaife although the bolts are sometimes not torqued properly and i believe your suppose to reverse the way something is mounted on the LSD.
