As far as I know, they were fitted to some of the late model turbo leones, but were only an option, and are like rocking horse shit. I know a bloke who has wrecked a number of leones, and he's only ever seen one. And he wont sell it to me either.
There was one on trademe a week or two ago that sold for $305.

Actually, that one was an R180 :oops:

A NISMO H150 lsd centre. (Good luck finding one! :lol: )
I have a used H150 spring loaded locker center. It's a bit worn, But the sidegears are intact. You'd need to fit it to a center with a crownwheel and pinion that were in okay cond. Not quite as good as a proper LSD, but does improve traction though......

I'd like to make a correction to what has been said in this thread. the A31's don't have a longnose, so what ever Dans diff came from, it wasn't one of them. ALSO, (at least with my R30) the biggger cool looking finned late model rear cover, won't fit unless you either, drill and tap the bolt holes to 10mm. (From 8mm) Or make some adapter sleeves to adapt the 8mm rear cover bolts to the 10mm rear cover bolt holes.
