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.

944 turbos had LSD's as an option but not that common. The later 250bhp turbo S had them as standard but limited numbers reached these shores.

If a 944 LSD can be fitted in a 924S gearbox then there are other options in the market e.g. Kaaz which can be bought from EMC Motorsport and I guess other such places.

All of the above have the same case dimensions so I'd guess any after market that slot straight into a 951 will fit.

Crown gear bolts on so you might get it to slot straight in but I have a niggle that the output bearings are larger on the later boxes.

I'll have a good gander tomorrow.I bought it as a LSD but never had any confirmation.It came out of a series 1 Turbo that had lost an argument with a bus in Exeter.

If you spin one drive flange the other should spin in the same direction to confirm its got an LSD. If it spins the opposite direction then it hasn't. The /12 is a serial number confirmation it was fitted with one from the factory. However this is not 100% as the LSD could have been removed in the past. Non /12 boxes could have had one installed but unlikely. Let me know as I would be tempted to dip into the engine rebuild money to secure one.
