I'm running R200 CLSD's. Swepco 201 - you don't need any LSD additives with it.

posi is lsd.
posi was just General Motors terminology for lsd.

used to run normal GL-5 + Ford friction modifier- smelled like poo on a stick but it didn't chatter after the addidtive went in. I have no idea whats in my current ride.

Not to thread jack but, anyone added capacity to help save their R160 LSD's from grenading? My friend just ponied up the $250 for a Perrin cover on his WRX, looks real cool but $$

We nuked a diff at the Westwood 7 hour enduro one year, so it prompted us to build a few covers with increased capacity. We never had a problem after that.

This picture is on one of the 510 club of B.C. members car now. If anyone would like the full set of pictures that I have, i would be glad to e-mail them.
Send me a Pm with your regular e mail.

Mopar called theirs "Sure Grip." Just their name for their clutchpack differential. GL-5 has friction modifier.

Actually, most GL-5 does not have friction modifier, the bottle needs to say that it has additive for LSD. I've see this rating in the past as GL-5+

Well, I stand corrected. I thought GL-5 had it and GL-4 didn't.

it would suck finding that one out the hard way, right? I checked a few manufacturer's sites and they seem to state whether they have F/M or not in each oil.
