Limited Slip for 6-Speed Manual

So I've been posting about this over on my facebook group, but thought I would put it here for easy access. Last night I did some research and tried to find out where else Hyundai (and Kia) were using the 6-speed manual that comes with the ES. A little bit of digging after someone mentioned that Bisimoto had an LSD for the 1.8/2.0L N/A cars, I came up with some matching gear ratios and a part number for the 2.0L trans but not much else. I put together a small spreadsheet of the ratios based on official numbers from Hyundai (see attachment below).

A further search this morning pulled up a custom Quaife LSD available for the Veloster Turbo at Pierce Motorsport, so I shot them an email and received this response:

2012-2017 Hyundai Veloster and Turbo Quaife Limited Slip Differential - Pierce Motorsports

Quote:
Hello there-I believe they will fit---we haven't actually seen the trans apart (and probably wont for a while), but looking at axles and ratios they appear to be the same.

Regards,

Jim Pierce
The price is quite high at $1,699 but I am wondering if we can get several people to commit to a purchase, maybe we can get a group buy discount or something.

Oosh! that's pricey, and we haven't even talked install. If there were a group buy with something more than a 10% discount I would be interested.

I asked about a group buy discount and Jim said they could probably do something. Apparently they are "quite expensive to modify".

I would imagine it would be. It's a fairly complex device.

Love that you founds this, but hate the price.

It fits for sure, nobody has spent the money yet though.

Has anyone bought this yet? Do we know for sure that it fits? I'm seriously considering it. I think this makes alot more sense as an upgrade than a bigger turbo on this car (which just exaggerates our traction problems). Makes the car faster in a very functional way without blowing up your motor.

I was 99% in for doing it, then after talking with Josh at KDM Tuners I decided not to. The LSD itself is not actually made for our cars, they have to send them off to a machine shop and have them modified. Hence why it's so expensive. The reason I decided against it was the fact that I was told it's super clunky and noisy. Good for a track toy, not the best idea for a daily driver.
