Right now I am in a Toss up of what I am really going to do. I want the Cobalt SS for this car show season. But it looks like that I won't get it and have the work I want done for it by the time of the GM Small Car Bash, Let alone all of the other shows before that. First one that I am concerned with is Slammin & Jammin and that is the last weekend of May.

Does anyone know how much power the factory LSD will be able to handle? With everyone trying to get more power out of the Cobalt SS, it'd be a shame to have it shatter into a million pieces.

Has anyone considered Quaife or Kaaz? Or some other third party?

I dont want the Recaro's that come with it, i'll just go third party with it. And as someone else said, we dont know how much it can handle, so why run the chance.
I'm sure the Recaros will fetch a pretty penny... :) I wonder if you'd have to sell the rails too?

I wouldn't get one without it. I drove a friends SE-R Spec V (180ft/lbs) and the front end on it bout got away from me when he let mestomp on it. So I'll definitely be gettin one!!!

Wonder if they can put it in after the fact or if its just offered from the factory

Yes it can be installed afterwards but it will cost you a LOT of money$$$.
Probably more than the $1400 claimed price and you wont get the Recaros either. But I think it would be worth it.

Whoever said it doesn't affect launching on the SRT-4's is wrong. (not being a jerk, just pointing it out)

On any car, a LSD is the difference between one wheel spinning, and two wheels spinning.

In our club, we have SRT-4's from '03-'05 and the ones w/ the LSD launch a hell of a lot better.

I wish I had it on my 'Tona :mad:

LSD Option Opinion

As the proud (original) owner of a '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R, one of the few FWD cars to have a factory LSD (viscous) diff, I can assure you that it will you get off the line a lot quicker than a car without it (power & weight being the same). Also sharp corner handling is improved, because if the inside tire slips power is tranferred to the outer wheel. This will be especially true with the Quaiffe diff, ( properly a torque biasing diff)

...(canada) yet. I checked about putting it in after the fact and even with the same LSD as GM is using and installed byGM mechanics it VOIDS the warranty. There are differing opinions but 1 GM rep said that all parts associated with such mods are also vioded. :mad:

Thats Bull Crap!!! They should warrant the products that they use!!
What a bunch of jerks! I bet it's just the dealer sayin that to get out of a warranty! I bet he's full of it!
