i wasnt planning on getting this, as a matter of fact i dont even have the getrag. i was just wondering if anyone has heard anything good/bad about this perticular lsd.

up until now i didnt even know anything else existed except for quaife, torsen, and that cheapo phantom grip.

on iClub's site, there's a dyno of a OBX Cold Air Intake for a 99 Impreza making the same amount of power as more popular brands. I found the thread but the images have been taken down... :(

That's the extent of my experience with OBX, though. I met joltdudeuc at several meets and he's not a BS'r. Can they make a decent LSD? No idea. Their catalog has a whole lot of items in it, but really... I don't think they manufacture it until demand has it. I have never come across anyone that has bought it, yet year after year it they still have it available. :T

However... check out this link that tested the OBX LSD's build quality:

CB7Tuner user's review

It stops short of getting it in there and testing, though... but at least you can get some pretty good quality images and a somewhat informed set of eyes on it.

This has been discussed numerous upon numerous times. Please use the search, here's just a few.....

I hear everyone saying it's junk but those are the only people that never actually bought it and are just repeaters. I never actually read about anyone that actually personally bought one and say it's crap. Just all the people who never used one jump on the bandwagon and say it's crap because it's on ebay.

The quaife and torsen are pretty much both the same besides quaife's lifetime warranty, even for race purposes. If you plan on going forced induction, that should be the obvious choice.

No one has EVER broke a Torsen, and Quaife has a sweet warentee. IMO, why wouldn't you go w/ a proven setup?? why would you risk 400 bucks when for 100 more you know you will be golden???

Anyways, as I am quoting someone but i do not know who, they said something along the lines of "OBX, i wouldn't even use that on my lawnmower!!"
