Question 1.6 differential swap

I want to swap the 1.6l differensial to something bigger and stronger, without changing the diff house. I have thougt about a Torsen diff our a detroit truetrac, but I want to use the original 1.6l diff house. You are the experts, what do you think I should swap to? I want something that is bolt on. Our almost, bolt on

Thank you!

you must change the housing, easiest option be a 1.8 swap, very straight forward swap

seriously guy, you are actually getting a very un-equal and unfair treatment. what should happen is you should get flamed like all the other people, for coming in here like a dickwad, and with your first post asking a question that can be easily searched.

Go to noob section, make a hello thread, post pics, update location/sig, yadda yadda yadda, then seach, then if you're still clueless THEN ask questions.

Otherwise im really surprised you are getting treated as good as you are.
