I see you took to editing the post. Even though they likely spent a lot to develop and test the sound tube in the first place it can't cost as much as it would to purchase the Torsen. They had decided that since the car wasn't the hard core RS model it could get away with the electronic aids. They do work, but it would have been even more raw with the mechanical limited slip differential.

My car did cost a bit less than an ST, but the sticker sure wasn't that much less. ( Almost no one paid that number for the standard Focus however, where as with the ST it would be harder to do better except on A/Z/D/X plans or if the dealer ordered one but then couldn't actually sell it for awhile.
