I have never heard about leather seats being a good indicator for torsen lsd. Where you you find out about this one? :gay:[/QUOTE]

Hey I forget where I read it but it was when I was looking in junkyards for a torsen. The idea is look for leather seats = possible M edition or heavily optioned car = much more likely to have a LSD.

Tapped oil pan is a big sign.
Disturbed exhaust manifold hardware. Screw holes where the AFPR was bolted to the firewall. Kinda hard but there are a few tell tale signs.
