Here is an example. I think I might go to Transtar to get mine, simply because I know the guys there...

EDIT: I know it says locker, but the description of operation below the pic indicates that it is a limited slip. PLUS no additive required?

Here is a better link...

I put a TrueTrac differential in my 1994 and I loved it and I never had a problem with it. It was nice to put a limited slip in instead of the open diff.

Very happy swapping a 4th Gen torsen into my 3rd gen. I like that there are no clutches or parts to wear really; it's all helical cut gears and a mechanical lock.

If you look it up its the coolest looking diff ever IMO.

Plus it's real solid at putting the power down.

just to be fair auburns are great. i've had mine for several years now and i'm happy with it. don't want to give people the impression that torsen is always the way to go. on my car swapping to a torsen is a chore.

Depends on power level and end goals really. My car powers through the clutches going around turns, so I'll one wheel peel with my auburn. However the auburn will live under more power theoretically because the clutches can slip instead of small gears breaking(torsen). You'll need quite a bit of power to snap the gears in the torsen though, like FBO, heads and cam ls1 type of power I'd imagine.

Full bolt ons, like mine. Intake manifold, intake lid, long tubes etc.. anything that doesn't require you opening up the engine. I'm just missing an under drive pulley, but I also have mildly worked 243 heads so I'm out of the bolt on category. I really need a cam lol
