First off, I would like to just give out a hollar to everyone here on this board.. I've been browsing back and forth on this site every now and then and dayam, I've got to give it up to you guys.. This is one of the best forums I've been in.. And I guess its safe to say the most sophisticated and interesting people reside on this board as well...
ok, now to my quick question. -- On the IS300 M/T or A/T ... Both equipped w/ the stock LSD.. Would the LSD still work properly and efficiently if the IS' were to be modded via force induction producing well over 400+ hp??... Or would the IS' have to be completely stripped of the stock LSD, in favor of an aftermarkent LSD... I apologize if this question has been asked already, or if a similar question has been asked.. I just hope I'm making sense to you all.. heh..
--TIA

Torsen makes some of the best LSD's available. I don't know what the stock LSD is rated at however. I would estimate that at the IS's rwhp of around 170, you should be able to double that, and probably even triple it without worry about the rear end. After that though, all bets are off. What are the 600hp+ Supras using?

the 600, 700 and 800 hp supras are mostly using stock lsd, of course there are a few running aftermarket ones, but the owners of those are usually the ones that can't drive, or have money to piss away. the stock motored supras that have made over 850whp use stock rears.
i have no fears about my lsd, for when i go over 600whp.
