    Default How to LSD your ZX2

    Ok here's my tread about the MSP LSD.

    Part List for the tranny:

    1x MazdaSpeed Protégé LSD 2003 or 2003.5 around 500$
    2x Carrier Bearing one on each side of the diff oem 42$ each around 25$ each from a bearing store #42008X
    1x VSS gear (pink) you can use the old one from the oem diff new 33$ from Ford
    2 x axles seals around 8$ each
    2 x locking nuts for both shafts around 15$ each




    1 MazdaSpeed Protégé LSD 2003 or 2003.5

    pictures of mine












    I know i dont have to replace the ringgear to get it to fit in the tranny
    but i get the diff with a broken ringgear for a dirt cheap price....



    i case you'll need to go the same route than me
    www.corksport.com
    you need to ask for the arp stud kit it only come with the quaife diff.
    be prepare to pay 200$ for 10 studs and nuts...
    you need to shave the shift gate a bit to get the arp bolt to pass




    to get the vss gear into place you need to machine the seat where the gear goes ...as the msp doesnt need it it use a abs sensor to get the speed reading. You can just grind a bit of the vss gear at you own risk...



    here's without machining it stand to high



    here's after machining








    you can get the diff welded but since they corrected the problem with the revised version of the LSD you dont need to get it welded.



    here some more pics
















    Axles:
    i did get mine from : Atelier Hp here in quebec
    http://www.atelierhp.com/page/home.php?language_id=2
    we have 2 other set going on now as we speak.







    close shot of the splines





    the only problem with the use of MX-3 V6 axles is the midshaft is not the same pattern


    that's why we did make an adaptor to get it fit.




    and here's the result of this installation...



    i think thoses info can help you to get a lsd in your tranny.



    here's a link with alot of pics

    Does the S/R come with a limited slip differential? On this site it lists a ford racing part number for a lsd used on the s/r http://www.geocities.com/ford_zx2_sr/

    "Limited slip differential-M-4204-Z2"

    No, the S/R doesn't have a LSD. There is a Quaife LSD that was available that costs a lot of money, it might still be available, I don't know.

    If you're going to turbo the ZX2, then it's well worth the money to do this, especially to avoid the weak stock diff.

    no there is no such thing. a theory is that SVT were planning on a LSD but dropped the project. that would be the reason behind the part number

    Curious... what would be the next thing to go tranny wise now? Gears? or would it be more likely to snap an axle? I remember on the old MSP how to someone talked about using ZXtuner axles... but that's not possible right? cause the spline count is different then what the mazda ones are right?

    hm... no idea. guess not. cuz we modify it to fit the VSS gear. and hem... the mx3 v6 axles are much more solid (5 bearings instead of 3) so no. the axles will be fine enough..

    next step I guess would be the gears... but in my old tranny I ABUSED, the gears were BRAND NEW. so I guess they can take quite a lot.

    Ok, so the ring gear from the MSP LSD will fit, right?

    Question...
    What is the Diff between a 'phantom grip' and a lsd?

    I think a real LSD is gear based where a phantom grip is clutch based... the PG just presses two pieces of metal against the side gears which prevents them from slipping.

    Someone else may be able to explain it better... but from what I know that is the answer
