Not a 5 speed MT, but a front LSD anyhow....

I installed a Modena torque biasing diff in the JDM VTD 4EAT in my SVX and a Quaife Torsen in the rear....

Now that we have a foot of snow the traction is awesome. The whole car is transformed.... and it goes up a snowy hill much, much better than my 06 3.0R Outback :). Both running same tires - studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7s.

I had Detroit Truetracks in both axles of my offroad Range Rover. The TBDs a great, especially in the snow and on slippery slopes - they do not try to balance the speed, but the torque. They retain open diff steering properties - a huge benefit over a "locker" - but naturally suffer if axles are crossed and two wheels are in the air. Also they are quite gentle to the drive train components. Shock loads are controlled.
