In this instance, a CSG spec doesn't make sense, since it wouldn't work for everyone, or even a wide range of users.

OS Giken LSDs are currently backordered, but the next batch on order by CSG arrive at the end of March. At that time, each unit is opened up and configured as needed before shipping.
Very very true.
I've had one fitted now for nearly 5 years, great diff... but really does need to be set up properly by someone who knows what they are doing.
Initially mine was installed by a general purpose diff guy...and it wasn't too impressive.
I then had a genuine specialist have a "play" with it....it was like night and day.

Going off my OP: I've decided to try something other than the typical brands you see on an import, since I have experience with muscle car brands. It may turn out well or it may not; however, I'll update the community when I get it on in the event it helps someone else. I decided to go with the 6 puck McLeod Street Supreme clutch kit and McLeod aluminum flywheel (~12-14lbs, I don't recall at the moment). Also, I bought an upgraded Versus forged clutch fork and Versus billet clutch pivot. I haven't installed them yet but will soon. I went with McLeod due to my muscle car background and to just try something not a lot of others have yet.

How are you liking it? My Exedy S1 is holding up to my new flex fuel setup, but I'm fully anticipating having to upgrade soon...McCleod seems intriguing.

I am curious to know if the OE clutches for the 2nd gen GR86 / BRZ are stronger and better than the Gen 1 ones and if that's a good replacement? Also how is the availability of these parts as the cars themselves seem to be in short supply.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been swamped at work and completely forgot about the forum. I'll say the McLeod is definitely not for the Daily, if you're in a lot of traffic. I run in to a lot of lights on my daily commute and sometimes if traffic is bad it can be a bitch.

It grabs really well and with the car having as much power as it does, from running the SC, I have to barely feather the gas and pull out a lot of times while still riding the clutch. Don't get me wrong, though. It is mean on a full take out , pulls, and an all out run. When the car is fully winding out it will grab and go. It's a beast. I was even on the interstate one day and dropped in to fifth to do a pull doing about 65-70mph, but hit too low an RPM and it held. The car broke traction and thrust forward.

The clutch rattle can be a little bad in first sometimes depending on how and where you're pulling out, but in other gears it isn't a problem. I also get some flywheel noise only when running the A/C. All in all, I think it's a fair clutch but just watch the application. I think it's a good clutch but one for the track and not one for a DD doing 30 stop lights every other block, or so with heavy traffic.

No problem, thanks for sharing all of that. I deal with Tampa traffic on the reg, definitely not the clutch for me considering. My Exedy S1 has started to slip, so I've been having to drive her on the wastegate map.

Why do you like this clutch? Also what was annoying about it?

I am also looking at a South Bend Stage 2 daily.

I like the clutch because it is light, easy to drive, and has a better throwout bearing. OSG clutchs are a complete system, so they include: flywheel and clutch, upgraded throwout bearing, and braided clutch line.

The annoyance was only during the break in period because the pedal was extremely stiff and the bite point was like an light switch. After driving it for a few weeks it eased up considerably, still stiffer than stock but much easier to modulate. My 60+ year old mother has driven it and had no issue.

If you are looking at OSG I would talk to Mike at Counter space garage.

Also forgot to mention that the kit also comes with a upgraded clutch fork as well.

Thanks, I did ask on the weekly reddit thread and got Mikes input. Just trying to gather info since there is some CSG bias. I have heard great things about both clutches.

There is no bias in strictly factual replies.

I have the same clutch and OEM Flywheel. Ran great with my FRS when it was boosted. Still fine after not being boosted
