It has been suggested that one way of converting an E38 open diff to a LSD diff, could be to use the limited slip center spool from an E32 seven series. Now there are are several questions that occur to me that may be of concern:
a) Does the LSD spool need to match up with the gearing ratio of the open diff?
b) How does the spool mount and integrate within the existing diff housing?
c) Where there any issues with the E32 LSD diffs that would make this a really bad idea?
