Maryland Shop to install LSD

Hi everyone,

So I recently ordered the new wavetrac LSD for my rallycross SVT. I've never done transmission work before so I'd like to find a shop to do it for me. I live down in southern Maryland but I doubt there's any shops down here that have done this work on a Focus before.

Has anyone had an LSD installed in their SVT in Maryland/DC/Baltimore area? Which shop did you use? Any recommendations?

Also I'm going to do clutch and flywheel while the transmission is out (still need to figure out which parts to get). Anything else I should get done while it's out? I'm thinking transmission seals as well.

There are a couple members up here in Hampstead/Westminster that have done 8 or 9 installs for other forum members before. I met them a number of years ago at a "Ford Nationals detailing party". I was the odd-man-out as the people that showed up were already a group of friends beforehand, and I mentioned I was looking to do an LSD myself.

Their price sounded VERY reasonable compared to risking it with a shop that may not have specific experience with these cars. I had just become an automotive technician, so it wasn't a job I want to pay and have nothing to do with. If you just need it done and don't feel safe/confident doing your own car; this may be a great experience and money saver for you, though.

Viney266, Was the username of the gentleman that hosted that party. He and another member were the gyys that put those 8-9 diffs in, and for the life of me I cannot remember the other person's name! It's kinda embarrassing as I've met him five or six times and even bought his old Xcal2 off of him!

Yeah that sounds perfect. I do most of my own maintenance so having some people that are experienced help out and I pay them would be great. I'll send him a message

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
