So the NM LSD is in fact a Qauife unit, right? Ben, weren't you looking for someone who might carry this for less than Qauife itself? www.nismoparts.com has them for $768. Just an FYI....

Wait a minute... Where has it ever been said that the Nissan Motorsports LSD is in fact a Quaife ATB? IIRC, the Nismo LSD is just an improved viscous-type LSD with more lock-up, while the Quaife is a torque-biasing differential.

You'd be hard pressed to find a Quaife ATB for that cheap. The SR20 application was originally going for $1295, and just a few months ago, the price was reduced to $995. It would be hard to find it significantly lower than that without resorting to group deals. There is a group deal in progress, though, and Ben Davis mentioned the person you want to e-mail to get details on this deal.

My bad, I know I heard it either here or on the list that they were the same unit. Guess not
Well, at least now you know were to find the Nismo unit for a good price

Heh... here's a surprise: The Nismo VLSD has been going for a price similar to that for quite some time. I, personally, don't think it's worth it because it's pretty much just a beefed up viscous type LSD with more lock-up. You would be better off paying the extra 200 bucks to move up to a much better performing torque-biasing differential like a Quaife.
