Is the Torsen really that much better ?

Ya know with ALL the Mods that Ive read on Mustang Forums . I rarley see any mention of the Torsen limited sip as an upgrade for their GT's.
Higher gear ratios yes, But never a mention of the Boss 302 Rearend as an upgrade, And You'd think if your adding Horsepower with a tune, exhaust or manifold, that the Rear holding all that extra HP, would be the First area you'd upgrade

So what is so special about the Torsen ?
Are GT Mustangs really running an inferior limited slip rearend

Lots of people modding up are more interested in straight line performance, which isn't the forte of the Torsen. Road racing and Mustangs are still only a tiny percentage of modders. The Torsen in the Boss is a mixed-purpose design, some straight line, some corner but, not ideally set up for either.

3.73 cars, at least, get the GT500s carbon clutch plate T-Lok LSD, which offers good performance and cheap repairs. With proper setup, it isn't to be underestimated in what it can do.

Upgrading to carbon clutch plates on another T-lok is a couple hundred bucks, WAY less than Torsen pricing.
