- Car(s): 2.8 Injection 1983. Restoring:1979 MGB GT + 1964 Honda 250 twin. Previously owned 2 Capris.
LSDs were only standard in the late 2.8 injection Special and the 280 which followed it (last of the V6 Capris, often referred to a a Brooklands). The earlier 2.8 Injection models like your 1981 car wouldnt have had an LSD as standard though one could have been retrofitted since by a previous owner.

The early ones, 81 - 83 had the 4 speed box. Quite a few people prefer the 4 speed ones.

As said in previous replies, neither of those were fitted as standard to a '81 2.8, and neither are they listed as an optional extra in the 1981 brochure.
