Full Version: OBX Lsd? Mfactory?

I have been lurking around honda, dsm, and nissan forums about these. I already know i need to basically pull the whole diff apart and grind down some of the edges and smooth them all out to prevent any unwanted debris in the lsd. I also have read to replace the washers in the middle of the diff since those are prone to braking.

I was wondering if anyone on 6gc has used a obx lsd or know anyone and what is your input?

I've heard stay away from it and i've heard stuff like "i'm running 300+whp and it works great"

I'm on the fence on this one.

in the 7th gen world we stay away from the OBX LSD. http://newcelica.org/forums/showthread.php?t=244029 good info here

One of my honda buddies showed me that mfactory also makes a lsd just like the obx one but atleast its a actually a name brand lsd.

For $650 new i'm thinking about this one also, so many choices!

I still have been hearing good things in the honda world with m-factory. The $1000 dollar lsd's are outta my price range still. Maybe some wider tires will help a little bit atleast.
