Or even worst brake the differential if it's not properly welded...
The cheap solution is to buy the GRIP.That stupid thing they 've made that modifies your open differential into LSD one.It is upgradeable through springs or sth like that.Personally i 've used it on my Baleno with my old GTi's gearbox and i broke it!!Twice i must say and the dealer here kept saying that it was problem from the factory.When i told him about my set up he reconsidered and advice me to buy a LSD one which i did and currently running on Cusco Type RS LSD,greek price is 980euros!!
Be prepared for everything Laughing Laughing
