Default Who wants OSG LSD?

In anticipation of my getting my track car back up and running, I'm debating on replacing my current OSG with the high-power OSG. Emilio says that these things are indestructable and should easily get $1200+ for it... that's not saying anyone of you cheap-asses (myself included ) will offer that, but that's what I'll need for me to pull it out of the housing... and no, the 3.6 R&P does not come with it (unless you want to buy me a new one).. I will throw a bone and cover shipping - as long as it ain't Thailand or somewhere across the world. Open for flaming and/or cash - preferrably cash

Or you can buy a new shiny one at $1600...

And your point? You willing to hook us up at that price? The high-power from 949 is $2100 and some change... so unless you can hook us up with your 'work' prices, I suggest you keep your awesome hook up to yourself as most of us dont have that luxury... and I also try to support our vendors...

We'll see... there's always the option of pulling it out and sending it to Emilio for getting 're-tuned' as a high-power.. but that cost is about $800+/-. So, weighing the difference in costs between new and re-tune with shipping, I *might* be better off sending it in... at least this way gives someone the chance to go OSG.

No point, just stating a fact...Spec Miata just got the OK to use OSG stuff so a lot of people are going to be looking at running these in the near future. Ill let some people know this weekend theres one for sale. You may want to try getting on a SM forum, might have some luck..

I changed my mind on this OSG - I'm gonna pull it and send it in to 949 to get re-tuned as a high-power.. after doing so, there's not much of a cost benefit, but at least it will come back as an entire assembly, backlash set and all.
