Thanks, although the part alone is like half the battle. Still gotta pick up the accessories for it and the install itself will put me back a couple of bills lol

Really looking forward to the results though

This stuff ain't cheap, that's for sure. It's worth it in the end though, at least that's how it was with my car. I can't wait to see yours when it's done.

Unfortunately no, I hired a mechanic from out of town who specializes in Mitsubishis (who's garage is full of customer's DSMs & Evos).

Currently in the process of breaking it in, so no chance to really test the LSD. I can however say that the clutch/flywheel combo isn't as extreme as I had expected. For one the pedal is actually lighter than stock now, which was a big surprise. There is some chatter at idle, but nothing really too bad, you almost wouldn't notice it. Getting going from a dead stop takes a little finesse because the car will want to buck & bog without enough revs, so you need to give it a bit of gas before bringing up the clutch. Shifting also needs to be done faster as you lose a lot of revs really quickly between gears, and since the flywheel is not sprung, it takes some precision to match speeds without jerking the car. All those issues are relatively minor and can be easily overcome with a little practice. Honestly, a six-puck and LW flywheel are just fine in a daily, nowhere near as hardcore as I had imagined.

Couple extra pics

Should go perfect with my train set I got for my 7th birthday lol

Visited Hackish today and sharpened up the 94 tune. Dropped MIVEC engagement to 3800rpm, lowered the DFCO to 1000 (1100 stock) and cut timing all across the rev range to within an inch of knocking. So it's pretty much as optimized as it can get. Should be good for a couple more ponies

So is the Quaife LSD a bolt-in swap for the open diff once the tranny is out and open (looks like you unbolt the open from the driven gear and bolt on the LSD) or is there shimming required? I see the tapered roller bearing on the end of the diff output shaft those typically have a preload spec.

Did it fix the torque steer? Would be worth it for just that in my opinion even if not racing.

Thanks.
