Is it of the viscous variety? If so there are mixed opinions, they only work when they are well warmed up. A second hand modena is a better bet.

Thanks a lot but I'll go for a Gripper LSD, because of shipping costs.

No! I only tried to explain that there is a plate type ( I prefer plate type obviusly, but I use my swifts for race only).
But I prefer torsen ones for street use.

Yes. Torsen are excellent for FWD street use, especially if you keep the preload (shimming) low, otherwise parking can still be a pain. As mentioned the traditional style clutch pack type is only good for RWD street use or racing FWD as it increases the steering effort dramatically.
