For comparison- Fbody guys are pushing 300-350HP through the factory 7.5 inch rear end. An 8.8 is plenty strong enough.

im thinking of try to put a mitsubishi starion rear in, they all come factory lsd, 3.42 gearing, if i remember right its a 8" ring, the 4 bolt rears hold 400rwhp easy, and 6 bolts, well, you break axles before the rear

If you want something strong and looks like a whale dong, just pick up an S4 TII diff. It also semi-bolts in.

Do your PITA diff swap then. I was offering an easier idea if you liked having the donkey dong diff hanging under your car. You haven't seen me being an ***... yet.
