Default Which Mk1s come with LSD?

Hi, my car just sold today so i am on the lookout for a mk1 1.8 eunos which i will be boosting with the GT25R sat in my garage

Just wondered which edition eunos come with the torsen LSD? also ive been told 1994's are best for boosting, is this true?

at least here in the US. Re 1.8l Miatas:

If a 94 has power steering and a 5 speed it left the factory with a Torsen. PERIOD. That's because PS was only available on the A package and up which also had Torsen.
In 95 they started offering PS on the base models, a Power Steering Package they called it.
5 speeds with Power Mirrors left the factory with a Torsen except the 97 STO
Obviously all R Packages had a Torsen.
Leather and 5 speed = Torsen EXCEPT for the 97 STO.

So it's really just base models, glorified base models(called power steering package), automatics, AND that damned 97 STO that didn't have a Torsen.

Here's the complete list of what came with what: http://www.miata.net/faq/features.html

Again, that's US-spec, and from your use of the Eunos badge I'm very puzzled as to where you live. Your IP points to the UK, but Eunos was a Japanese marque.

edit: On re-read, you're not Japanese or you'd have known that Eunos was a make, not a model. Like Acura here in the states. MkI Roadster or MkI Eunos Roadster would have been the correct callout. Calling it a MkI Eunos is a bit like enquiring on a third gen Vauxhall. Ok, a Vauxhall what?
