in a 2g fwd, what worked best to keep your fwd from torque steering, and wheel hopping down the pavement? ive heard an ELHS with a 6 bolt helps with an LSD... i will NEVER weld the diff. out of the question. i like to make u-turns. im keeping it a 7 bolt so the half shaft is out of the question as well... what options do i have?
 
Unless you're flooring the throttle off every acceleration, torque steer shouldn't be an issue. My spyder is now awd, but when it was fwd, I never really had torque steer problems, even with spirited driving.
 
Thing that reduce/ remove wheel hop:

Engine torque damper
traction bars
poly bushings

I have dealt with torque steer on turbo K honda/acuras, but havent had torque steer on a dsm. I know adding a Quaiife LSD doesnt help (on a hondA),.
Things like using a larger turbine housing and a boost by gear setup will lessen it . Personally I would just learn to live with it. Once you get used to the torque steer, you know when its gonna happen and you will auto compensate , like its a reflex.
 
Well it isnt a bolt in but you seem to suggest the 7 bolt ( I assume 2g) block wont work.
Problem is the size of fwd axles vs awd. Trying equal length shafts would require front diff modification.

yes for 2g 7 bolt. feel free to check out my thread build if you are interested. the trans is currently out of the car, along with everything else besides rear brake lines in the bay. any links or documented procedures you can share along with this info? thanks!
