Although the 1.8 rear is stronger, it's not necessary to swap it with the motor. You can swap the motor and leave the 1.6 driveshaft, diff, and axles in the car.

To swap to 1.8 rear you need the whole rear 3rd member with the stubs and the 1.8 driveshaft. easy and much stronger.

The Torsen is like Vtec. Sometimes it's just way too much for you.

I'm done cluttering up your thread with any more sales pitches than I already have. It seems clear to me you haven't done any actual research into what you need. But get in my for sale thread or PM if we are actually talking.
