A properly working clutch- type limited slip diff will slightly bark the tires if you apply some gas. The amount depends on the tightness (preload) of the lsd, type of gear oil used and whether or not lsd friction modifier is added to fluid. I highly recommend adding the friction modifier, it makes lsd work smoother and it will prevent premature lsd clutch pack wear.
I just regeared and rebuilt the d44a on my ZJ with new spicer clutch packs, on dry surface on rwd it will bark the tires. I'm sure the ected does it as well. As for the Ected, I'm not saying it's crap - it has it's use on a mildly used off-road vehicle. But it's IMHO overpriced and you can get a torsen- type lsd at much lower price with similar or better performance without the problem of clutches wearing out.
