Question Where can I buy a Limited Slip Diff for my 2000 S?

I'd like to buy an LSD for my 2000 S 6 speed manual

I know a company makes them in the U.K., but does anyone sell them here in North America?

What about using a Porsche 911 LSD?


thanks!

thanks!

Seems like they sell a Torsen LSD made by Quaife. 1700$ for a 986 S. Seems ok.

I'm going to get one to help driving the Boxster in winter...tired of seeing only one wheel spinning when I'm stuck in snow...

Spinning only one wheel in the snow? hmmm, I think I have seen a fix for this. Its a bit more expensive, but I've heard about great results:

but in all seriousness, I'm assuming you've tried snow tires and chains? I dunno how much help you will get from an LSD in the winter. But in the summer i know that its awesome
