I'd like to know how many base owners have actually put an LSD on their car.....

every time SH vs base comes up, someone says "with the money you save from the base, you can get an LSD, upgrade the suspension, and outhandle the SH"

well?? has anyone actually done it??

Why sad? And I'm sure an SH would make a fine race car, just don't turbo it.

I have a Quaife, and yes, I installed it myself.

Nope, not me. The Quaife fit like stock. Just took some time to set the preload correctly.

II'm very interested in the Quaife LSD. The bbig problem is I don't have the technical aability to install it myself and would ttherefore have to trust a shop (UGH!) to do iit right. What all does it entail?

well the reason i ask, they just picked it up and have the full intention of making it a race car. If i wasn't going for a race car the SH would be more than fine for me

It's quite involved. Remove the tranny, remove the diff (this requires you to disassemble the transmission), remove the final drive gear and speedo gear, install the drive gear and speedo gear on the LSD, install the LSD, adjust preload, reassemble the transmission, then reinstall the transmission back into the car. Not something for the timid.

Wow, I didn't know that they were going to allow the Prelude (much less the SH) compete in SSB. Now I see why you bought an SH. Anyway, I thought that the Civic Si was the hot ticket for SSB, but now that the Prelude is there, things could get interesting. The Prelude could get quite a bit of exposure in that class. Do you know what restrictions and/or what allowances they are giving the Preludes, and are they treating the base model and SH the same in SSB?

The base Prelude has been is SSB for years. The Type SH is classified in T2 but it is terribly outclassed there. On February 20th SCCA decided to move the Type SH down to SSB starting next year. The Miata is the perennial powerhouse in SSB right now but I think the Type SH has a good chance there. The Civic SI is in SSC.
What region of SCCA does your dad race?
