Pros:

open diff: very cheap, less frequent service intervals, safer for noobs
lsd diff: towing heavy loads, safer for experienced drivers

None, it has nothing to do with horsepower. If anything at all, you would lose the tiniest immesurable fraction through rotating mass and mechanical friction.

while this threads going, can anyone recommend where i can get some copper washers for the fronts? i got 'champion' brand ones from autobarn.
the 3/8 ones have too small inner diameter to fit the banjo bolt, but the outside diameter fits the hollow on the caliper

the 7/16 ones have the right inner diameter to fit the banjo bolt, but the outside diameter is to big to fit the hollow on the caliper.

Why aren't LSDs safe for noobs? More likely to lose the back end under power?
Pretty much. A single spinner lets you know when you've given it too much boot in the rain, and you can back off. An LSD will throw you sideways pretty much instantly - and in a car with stock suspension, that can be scary for ANYONE at 80kph.

Conversely, if you drive like a chopstick and keep your foot booted all the time, a single spinner is going to do something unpredictable at some point, and throw you into a wall. An LSD will always react in the same way, so you can at least brace yourself for the impact.

Take a sample washer into Burson and they have packets of them everywhere.

I like it morton haha !

OK in " chopsticks" terms

Open center = crap single wheel skids unless you get em spinning fast enuff or your dif is just ****ed or welded up :p

LSD, great for going sideways and laying 2 lines of rubber instead of 1 !

I hope thats easy to comprehend...........

But as morton said, lsd + wet = dangerous for the novice driver

and allso cheap parts for me :D

Also just note, cheap/old lsd + wet + good driver = dangerous anyway :p Sometimes worn LSDs aren't as predictable as you'd like :p
