Porsche vs. aftermarket Limited Slips?

Hey everyone,
I'm getting ready to stick a 6-speed G50 gearbox into my 964 and I'm trying to do some research before starting the project. I want to end up with a limited slip in the transmission. It was brought up, however, that limited slips have come a long way since the 993 gearboxes came out. Would it be better to buy a gearbox with no limited slip and then add an aftermarket limited slip, or would it be better to stick with a Porsche LS? Also how much are the limited slips worth? i could always trade out on getting a better limited slip or marbe put it onto my old 5-speed and be able to sell that for a greater price. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

The answer may depend on what you intend to use the car for. Track, street or combo....

Thanks for the compliment.

You want a PMS or GT, 40/65 split differential w/ steel syncros, and a custom gear stack. A ROW G50/31 or 32 are other good choices

I'm currently having my 915 rebuilt with a GT chromoly lsd, and was told this was the one to go for because it's particularly strong. Not sure how true this is but i don't think it was sales hype, i had the option of the GT chromoly, quaife ATB, torsen, and a factory ZF, and was told this was the best.

Regards, Jon H
