I think you mean posi-trac.. Which yes I think is better than the stock limited slip.. If you do a rear gear upgrade just upgrade to a posi carrier..

If you have an 89 5.0 you should have a (limited slip) posi already.
Just rebuild it with some better clutches and a stronger S-spring for better "holding" capabilities.


For a stronger center section without clutches, I would go with a Detroit Locker center.
They rattle and clack when going around corners or backing up, but they are stronger than almost anything else out there.


I have the Auburn Pro center section in my car and while it has held up great so far, the one thing I don't like about it is that it is not rebuildable. Once the "cone" clutches are shot you pretty much have to throw it away and get a new one.
My replacement will be the Detroit Locker.

I ran auburn pro units in the past. Broke 2 of them on a mildly modded 94 cobra and Nitto DRs at the track. When I say broke I mean completely shattered. After the second unit bit the dust I put in a ford F150 diff with 2 extra clutches and it was a beast and handled numerous 4500 rpm launches on a prepped track.
