Audi 016 strenghtening plate ??

Having a limited slip has nothing to do with a plate installed or not, in fact with a limited slip diff you may have more stress placed on the pinion shaft.

If we're talking about the plate style LSD from a 944 then that should reduce the likelihood of spider gears imploding obviously.... That's the primary benefit at least in my view. Have personally installed a number of these LSD's in 016 boxes and run pretty big hp/tq through them afterwards with no issues. But then again, I'm not a total monkey with the throttle and drop clutch starts.

The plate provides some much needed reinforcement to the rear of the cast iron housing, and that's helpful in all situations.
