Do i need LSD?

Hye guys i am a new member on this site, and i just bought a 97 prelude. It is currently automatic and from what i read they all crap out at above 100k miles, besides i prefer 5 speed anyway. the car has 101k miles on it. i bought the car from a guy who had plans of making a drag car but lost interest and ran out of funds. the h22 is still in the car, i believe he just strapped a t3 on it. the motor has MASSIVE amounts of blow by and has a knock. so i definately need to redo the motor.

i got the car for 1700 bucks with plenty of goodies such as a vafc2, greddy profec b, intercooler, msd ignition with boost retard, air fuel and boost gauges, full body kit, brand new bumper, so even if i have to redo the motor i'm still not losing much.

i am planning on pulling the motor maybe this weekend, and while im in there i thought it would be the best time do swap to a manual trans as well. i looked up an h22 trans and they want 550 without lsd and 850 with. i also found an h22 trans out of an accord with 71k miles on it that i can probably get for 300 bucks or so. i'm on a tight budget since i need to redo my motor as it is, so my question is just HOW important is the LSD. will my car pull very hard to one side off the line or when i get on it? will i break cv shafts? any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks!!

You don't NEED it at all, but it sure is fun.

This is what it's like in the lude:












I keed I keed! But honestly you don't need it.

if you're planning on making any decent amount of power, I'd put one in. I have one in mine. Quaife.

Re: Do i need LSD?

Well from reading the OP post, I am gonna say not needed. Reason why...
You said all this things you are going to do to the motor and swap the tranny,
but you did not even consider the most important thing about boosting an engine.

TUNE IT or BLOW IT. I can not keep track of how many people like this guy, spend
all their money on turbo and boost, only to blow the motor cause they bolted on
the stuff and did not bother to properly TUNE. So go ahead and get it, it will only
help to blow the motor faster.

Oh and on a side note about the LSD....

Re: Do i need LSD?

i thought it was pretty obvious that i'd have to tune it. the only thing i said in the post was that i am going to rebuild the motor and wanted to swap the trans while i was there, i then proceeded to ask whether i need an LSD unit or not. i did NOT mention anything about what i am going to do after it's together.

Don't worry about it. Jay can be a D Bag just like most of us here.

Look, you do not need it but if you are on a budget I would not be worried about turboing the car again. Get rid of the turbo kit and rebuild it back to stock, but who knows, depending on what's going on in that thing you might be better off getting a new engine. Building an h22 to properly accept boost is a project that will break the bank.

Re: Do i need LSD?

you don't need it and if you shift gear real hard like racing it usually pulls to the driver's side but if you shift normally it should not bother you much, sell the turbo stuff man is a prelude you don't need turbo to run fast lol all you are gonna break your car by making it turbo

Re: Do i need LSD?

GET IT if you are serious about boosting the lude... but hopefully $300 wont make or break you... if your not trying to meet a deadline then just save up a little more and get it.

i have a stock h22 and wish i had one. i hate pulling through a turn and just the inside wheel spins. GHEY

$300? I wouldn't even consider an lsd that cost that little lol. a decent one will cost you $900-$1200 easy.

This is what it's like in the lude:

Are we talkin about LSD for cars or LSD for your mind? The experience after using both, you wont wanna not have it

Limited slip differential. It keeps you from spinning just one tire. It'll lock the differential up for lack of better words. If your plannin on draggin the car I'd say its a must have. I personally would spend the extra 300.

well the same place i got my motor from could get me an lsd tranny for 800 so i was comparing to that price. i know they vary from place to place. but my motor was super clean and runs great so for that price i would get one. thats why i compared that price to being good
