: Thanks so much for youe help. Just one more question did you change the % of the limited slip or did you just left it the same as the stock? Also
: $290 R&R rear diff ---> paid to the shop who remove the diff and send it to Korman
: $272 R&R gear set ---> paid to Korman to install new diff?
: I just want to get an idea of how many R&R hour job it wold be for the shop doing the differential (I think + or - 4 hours).

I left the limited slip ratio the same as it was. I'm not having traction problems off the line because of the gentle power delivery of the auto tranny.
Your figures for the two shops is correct. It took DINAN about 1.5 hours to remove the diff, and another 1.5 to reinstall it, @$95/hr. It took Korman 4 hours to R&R the gear set @ $68/hr. The high cost of Silicon Valley living and all that ...

To answer the other post's questions, I've got the full Dinan S3 package on my car: supercharger, exhaust, stage 3 suspension. In good conditions it does 0-60 in 5.2 and the 1/4 mile in 13.7 @ 106. I have more details, pictures, videos etc. at the link below.
