Interest in 3.55 Final Drive + LSD?

There's a good chance MFactory may be making an LSD to mate with the 3.55 final gear of the 8th and 9th gen Accord V6s. Would 7th gens be interested in a package of the 3.55 gears and LSD? This way you have a perfect N/A gear ratio and an LSD.

We may need a bit more proof than a 3 character log in, a dozen posts at once about this, and heresay from one person to say yes or no. I wonder what happened with the last super custom magnaflow J-Pipe that was supposely being made anyway...

I can also loop you into my discussions with MFactory if you're interested.

I understand your concern, but this isn't BS.

I mean if push comes to shove I'm going to pick up a TL-S LSD and plug and redrill my 3.55 to mate with it but an off the shelf option would be so much easier.

I wish it wasn't an uphill battle for everything on this platform...

why would you go with a lower final gear. Doesn't the gen 9 come with a 4.1 gear ratio? not sure if you have a gen 8 or 9. so I am asking. Also interested in seeing how much the LSD is and what type of LSD it is. 1 way, 1.5 way or 2 way. Clutch base, gear base?

Nah 3.55 stock. It's pretty well geared OEM. 65 in 2nd, 90 in 3rd, 120 in 4th.

I'd drop down to the 3.84 TB Motorworx gear but idk how to get the speedo corrected...

Wait you're telling me for 8k I can get 10 AT LSDs??????

Again, going to need more proof that one actually CAN be made. Ideas are great, but if the company makes nothing for this platform, and doesn't have a donor car, i'm not sure how they would be able to make a brand new piece of equipment.
