Will a 1.6 LSD be ok for turbo use?

it will work but a 1.8 will hold up to the abuse better. The 1.6 differentials are weak, and any enthusiast would do well to replace them, esp if you drive agressivly.

This reminds me of a slightly old VW ad: "My old car had crusty wiper blades, but my new VW has nice new ones."
