    if its NA then a S4 rear out of a GXL is the best bang for the buck

        Sounds like an NA.
        NA's have very little aftermarket LSD options.
        Good luck.

          What about for Miatas? 1.6 specifically. I've heard of FC diffs being used in them. What I'm asking is is there any cheaper alternative for a clutch type diff than a $800 KAAZ LSD?

            What about miatas with the 1.8? Kaaz, Cusco, Tomei?

                  learn to drive car first before you put lsd, its kinda like taking out the abs out so you dont have to rely on it. itll help you out more in the future.

                    I prefer the Torsen or gear-type LSD for the beginner drifter.
                    This types of LSD has very little maintenance, as opposed to the clutch-type LSD.
                    The clutch-type LSD needs to be rebuild depending on use and abuse.
                    The downside is that it cannot handle as much (torque) load as clutch-type LSD's.
                    In grip driving, the Torsen is the preferred type of LSD.

                    The Torsen has the most linear rate of lock-up.
                    The more it slips, the more it tries to lock-up.
                    This is good for beginning drifters, as it locks up the left and right wheels but in a progressive manner.

                    Clutch-type LSD's has basically two stages in locking up.
                    Prior to the clutch packs engaging, both wheels spin easily of each other.
                    Once you hit the lock-up point, it aggressively locks up.
                    If you're familiar with it's lock-up point, this is not a problem.
                    It can be unnerving for beginners trying to learn.
