All i can help you with is that the G-80 RPO code IS the so called "gov-loc" Limited slip.
thank you that helps alot, i dident want to not put it in and damage it but i was kinda thinkig that it wasent sopose to be in thare after i read that, it sead it can sorten its life span and iv herd thay dont last all that long eneyway
gov locks in a heavier axel will live fine. in a 10 bolt they are prone to breakage. I would use 75 90w synthetic like a mobil 1

on the the rest of it in good tune? if your fule pump was having problems keeping up it would have a tendency to "run out of fuel" You would go like hell then start to drop off or sputter.

First I would make sure everything is in good tune and the timing is correct. If that dosnt fix things. Then it sounds like your accelerator pump needs adjusted on the carb but its really hard to say. Get her in tune and then we can try to help you get the carb tuned if thats the issue(or figure out what the problem is anywho)
