Quaife Torsen Applications ...

It is my understanding that the Quaife for the 914 would bolt into the 
Audi Fox tranny ... but hey, I thought HR rated tires shouldn't be run 
at 90MPH, so what do I know?

Was the $1400 just for labor on disassembly & reassembly, or are more mods 
required beyond bolting the ring gear on the quaife and adjusting the pinion?
