SVT Differential

Looking To Put A Torsen Differential In My Car, While The Tranny's Drop. Though Curious As To The Difficulty And/Or Everything Else That Needs To Be Down When Doing This. If It's Fairly Straight Forward, Then I'ma Defently Go For It.

So Any One Do This Already? If So Any Tips/Advice?

I have a torsen and by far it is the best mod I've done to my car, however I can't help you other than to try a search (it has been discussed here before) and the general consensus is that it is a bitch of a job and to just let someone else do it.

How would you beable to tell if you were to have one installed already? I had bought an SVT just last week and it seems a little different in the front.
