Chris, thank you for all that you do for the PCA membership. '86 Carrera sits in the garage all winter due to steep, snow covered roads in this part of western Wyoming. I'm a pretty fair shade tree mechanic, and was wondering about the level of difficulty in replacing the stock differential with a limited slip (LS) or torque-bias (TB) model so I could get up my driveway Dec-Feb? Along with that, which Diff (LS or TB) would you recommend for a daily driver that doesn't see any track time, and can be parked when the weather/road conditions are especially bad? Clutch replaced and transmission rebuilt fairly recently by the prior owner, and the tires are new Mich Pilot Sport M+S.
