Hey Guys,

I'm planning on doing an LS Swap. I was reading up on the site about the NA transmission being weak in the ring/pinion area and was wondering if I put an LSD with some hardened gears in there thta would solve the problem? If so,.. where can I get an LSD that would fit in the '83 box?

all limited slip diffs are essentially the same for these transmissions. however i wouldnt waste your time doing anything with the n/a transaxle, they are weak by design. the main problem is the physical size of the gear teeth on the ring and pinion, they tend to break the teeth off the pinion. there are no stronger geatsets for the n/a transaxles. the final drive ratio is also wrong for a v8 swap, the 3.88 doesnt work very well.

your best bet is a turbo transaxle. it has a stronger ring and pinion, a reinforced mid case, and a better gear ratio (3.38). in fact even better is to get one with a factory limited slip, and then swap the n/a trans 5th gear into it along with the case stiffening plate. thats the combo most use for a v8 swap.
