LSD

Looking to replace my 3.31's with 3.73's. But I was Going to replace the limited slip with an aftermarket setup. Best choice to go with? Torsen, lok, eaton,? Or stick with the stock setup on my 2012 GT?

Re: LSD

stick with stock, why would you want to replace stock diff? these 8.8's are pretty solid axles. I would spend money else where

Re: LSD

Eaton best for strength w/o penalty in road use. Auburn is good as well, as long as you can accept that if you damage it, it's not rebuildable. Detroit Locker is too noisy/rough engaging for a car that sees road duty, Torsen for road course work as long as NO drag strip duty is planned. Stock T-Lok can be shimmed tighter for increased gription + leave the fish oil out if you can stand a little chatter. I did that on an 8.8 and ran slicks at the track for 10 years w/o issue, behind a power adder.

Don't worry about this if you're thinking, "while I'm in there". You can add or change any of these at any time without resetting gear depth or anything.

I have heard and seen nothing but good things about the Eaton units.
