Im in the process of buying another tranny for my 91t since it grinds. This guy offers me a tranny from the 2nd generation jdm mr2 and I was wondering is there clues that might help tell if its lsd or not. Or are they all lsd for the 2nd Gen. ? Help please.

I searched for "LSD" and came up with:

Here are the facts about the MkII MR2 and LSD:

It was not available on '91-'92 models

It was offerred as an option beginning in '93

It was only available on the turbo (E153 tranny)

On LSD-equipped cars, the A/TM designation on the dataplate in the driver's door will be 733/e153, or 735/e153

Look into the opening where the axles fit. If there is a bar between the 2 sides, it is an LSD tranny. If there is nothing there, it is an open differential.
