I think some people/previous owners assume all dogleg boxes have an LSD.

Anyone had any experience of these?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1976-1991-POR ... 2eb98ddf87

Mixed reviews in the States but, even with shipping, the price is good.

I don't understand how it coverts an open diff to a limited slip?

More info here.

Would this not be a 'cheap copycat' product of a quality known item like Quaife, Kaaz or ZF?? The ad tells you a lot about nothing!

Bear in mind shipping, import duty and VAT onto that price and its heading over £500 delivered. Try EMC Motorpsport for a Kaaz LSD. They use them in many of their 944/968 race car builds.

Kaaz don't do an LSD for a 924s. Nobody does as far as I can tell. This is the first aftermarket I've come across and I've never seen an s specced with a factory LSD.

To correctly answer the initial query (after we all went off on a 931 tangent), any of these will fit:

944 332 053 00
951 332 053 00
951 332 053 03
951 332 053 05

So find a 944 or a 951 with the LSD option and swap it into yours. Not the box but just the LSD.

Porsche appear to have no more in stock but I thought the later 951 had it as standard.


Thanks for this. Very useful info.

One question though. Would putting a 951 diff on a 924 gearbox alter the final drive ratio. I'm guessing it would but I am only guessing.

Again, useful info, thanks.

One more question though. The 951 LSD gearbox has an oil cooler, presumably to cool the extra heat generated by the diff. With that in mind, I don't see how it is compatible with a 924s gearbox and housing, or am I just being a bit thick (most likely).

Thanks.

An oil cooler would just be on a line from the box, not part of the casing and doesn't affect the differential at all.
