The price 27000 sek =4225.62 us dollars according to the conversion chart at http://www.xe.com/ucc/ . Thats quite a bit of money. although it would be awesome to have. :eek::cheesy:

Keep in mind, 27 k is VAT excluded. The price i'd have to pay if i could afford it, would be 33 750 :- without shipping. A dollar in swedish crowns is roughly 6,90:-
In other words.. Its more like 5000 dollars, not 4000.
Cause you have to pay VAT, am i right?

Damn nice box tho, 740 nm.. Phew.. With a Quaife differential, imagine the possibilities!

We don't have to pay VAT, although there may be some import fees.

i don't like limited slip in a fwd car, extreme understeer anyone?
If setup properly understeer is no worse then w/o a LSD. At least that's the case with my SPG which has a trans that cost more then the car itself :(

It sucks going around a track doing 1 tire burnouts with the outside tire fighting to hold the car in line thus horrible understeer. It's EASY to controll a car where if it looses grip both tires slip, also a LOT easier to controll oversteer :)

I think the Cobalt 6 speed gearset is the same except the 6th gear is a little bit different ratio,so maybe if you could find someone importing those gearsets you could use that and save a little bit.
would those fit???

It is gratifying to see that some companies have undertaken to tackle the most serious high power short-coming in these cars. I do not know how long they will be available as the cost will keep demand pretty low so they may lose interest pretty quickly. I hope I am wrong.

most people do not have 4000 dollars left lying around nor the 1000 dollars to have it installed or know how to make it work on their own
