The Prometeo helical LSD / Torsen differential is a direct replacement for the standard Alfa Romeo open differential.
Suitable for many Alfa Romeos - check the list below.
Unlike a conventional plate-style limited slip differential, the Prometeo Helical LSD differential relies on gears rather than clutch plates for its operation. That means it is much smoother in operation.
A helical LSD differential never locks harshly with a set pre-load of wheel slip across the driven axle, like a conventional LSD. Rather, the Prometeo helical LSD differential automatically biases the torque away from the spinning wheel across the axle, to a constantly varying degree, and never locks.
This differential has many benefits over a standard open differential, including maximising traction and minimizing wheelspin, eliminating torque steer and snatching in front wheel drive cars compared to conventional LSD units, and a maintenance-free design which retains the standard oil lubrication.
We recommend to have the differential mounted by a trained mechanic!Suitable for the following models / engines:Alfa 145/146 1.6 - 2.0 TS 16V, 1.9 TDAlfa 155 1.7 - 2.0 TS 8V, 1.6 - 2.0 TS 16V, 1.9 TDAlfa 147 1.6 - 2.0 TS 16VAlfa 156 1.6 - 2.0 TS 16V, 2.0 JTS 16VAlfa GT 1.8 TS 16V, 2.0 JTS 16VSpider/GTV (916) 1.8 - 2.0 TS 16V, 2.0 JTS 16VVariant 1:
