You won't need more power. But I can see how one could be confused. An LSD will not require more power, but the more power you have the more the open differential will become a problem.My understanding is that it would give you the traction of both front wheels instead of only one. So you could put more HP to the ground because if you're going to spin wheels, with a LSD you've got to have enough HP to spin BOTH wheels, not just one (like with an O.D.)
Good thinking... that'd be fairly easy with the right software.Related side note: on a traction-control-equipped Focus, it would theoretically be possible to program the system to improve the performance of an ATB differential, wouldn't it?
Not exactly a DIY project, but it's a cool idea. For all I know, maybe some OEM's already do that.
Cool, thanksHe's in Michigan - near Grand Rapids, I think. Generally, people pull the tranny themselves and ship it to Terry for the rebuild.
If you're interested, just call or e-mail him. I know he's having some family issues lately (his father-in-law's health, IIRC), so cut him a little slack if he doesn't get back to you right away.
