Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) Upgrade for Porsche® 928
Application: Porsche® 928, as follows:
Background: The early Porsche® 928 Limited Slip Differential (LSD) had 8 friction disks (4 per wheel). This LSD was advertised to have a 40% lock-up ratio, and performance-minded enthusiasts and racers have shown that this LSD is the strongest, most trouble-free, and can handle the greatest amount of torque. This large 8-disk LSD is probably a hold-over from the original design of the 928 as a 5 liter 400 HP muscle car before it was de-tuned before its release in 1977.
In 1985, the 5-speed "G28-10" transmission was introduced, with improved synchros by Borg Warner that made shifting smoother. However, the LSD was re-designed to half of its original strength, and the new transaxle had only about a 20% lock-up and 4 disks (2 per wheel),
The stronger 8-disk LSD is ideal for drivers who demand the most performance from their 928, those who have installed wider rear tires, supercharged cars, and racers. The customary inside-tire wheel-spin under acceleration out of a tight corner will be reduced or eliminated, and the 928 will launch out of the corner with a much higher speed as a result.
Additionally, the 8-disk friction plates can be restacked to double the lock-up if desired, raising the LSD from a 40% lock-up to 80%.
Description: Our LSD adapters make it possible to install the stronger 8-disk LSD into the 1985-and-up transaxle (manual or automatic), and we designed it so this can be done without removing the transaxle from the car.
Note that an 8-disk LSD is not included. You can locate your own, or we can locate a good used unit for you (subject to price and availability)
