You're not going to blow your tranny. The SC kits from ZZP don't give you full boost.
And if you're using that kit, what are you going to use for a PCM? I don't believe they support your car.

Don't want to blow your tranny? Then do straight-line burnouts at the track ONLY. No one-wheel wonders.

The LSD won't extend the life of your trans by any calculable amount. LSD is something guys get when they start pushing into the 13 second range to get a little better 60' times at the track.

I don't know if Intense offers one, however C-YA racing used to. Owned by Mike Dye, he'* a great guy.

I had one of his non-HD diffs in my GTP back in the day and honestly didnt notice much if any benefits. I cut better 60s going back the stock HD diff. FWIW.

Having lived with the lsd for a couple of years now I have drawn some conclusions.

Yes they do improve traction at the traction particularly in the burn out box.

On the street, it is not noticeable until you push it.
On dry roads, in a reasonably straight line both tires will spin and grip. If you do a sharp left hand turn, you can still get the inside left tire to smoke. If you do a sharp right hand turn, there is noticeably more traction and the front end will oversteer into the left hand lane.

On wet roads, it'* a different story.
Both tires will spin no matter what. This has the effect of sliding the front end similar to tail out power sliding in a rear wheel drive.....but this is front wheel drive ....so you really have to be more careful.

The one big benefit in the wet is before when I tried to accelerate quickly when merging into traffic, the one wheel would spin without much forward motion.
Now the whole car jumps over to the left with both tires smokin
