    I think I'm going to attempt to swap out my final stage resistor soon. From what I've seen online it seems like it should be ok, but only as long as you have just the right torx driver to get that niggly second bolt out! i.e. long enough, not too long, not too thick, grippy enough handle etc etc...

    I know nothing about diff ratios. I know the difference between open, LSD and live rear axle but nothing else. How do I find out (or does anyone know) the ratio of my standard non-LSD diff and how that equates to say a 3.23 ratio M3 Evo LSD? Thanks Taz
