Abarth transmission code

I’m in the market for a limited slip differential and want to make sure I order the right one. Anyone know or know where I can locate the transmission code for the 5 speed that’s in the abarth 500? I’ve read somewhere that it’s a “C510”. Any confirmation on this??

Interesting info in the link. I didn't realise all US Fiat 500s had a turbo. In Australia we get the Euro spec cars, the Abarth 500 is a T-jet (twin cam) turbo not multiair, the Fiat 500 is either 1.4 L T-jet non turbo (with 6 speed trans), or 1.2 L 8 valve non turbo, or 0.9 L twin with turbo.

Ok, just got my LSD for the Abarth swap! Bought right from Quaife. No need to pay some speed shop anything extra.

That's a relatively recent thing, I think starting in ~2020. Before then there were two engines offered, a naturally aspirated 1.4 Multiair making 101hp, and the 1.4t Multiair making either 135 or 160hp depending on 500t or Abarth. Many other models including the Jeep renegade and Dodge dart also got the 1.4t.
