I decided to switch to the torsen center diff out of 89 up 200 or 100 
quattro since I ended up tearing my car apart for a turbo install. 
FYI though it is a simple swap, except the two systems 
use differently shaped pullshaft for the gear slider,  it is possible 
though to modify the new operating rod to fit the old style 
pullshaft.  BTW I used the names as seen in Bentley manual.
The vacuum servo does bolt up to the older trannys and you will have 
to run the vacuum lines to the front, otherwise it is simple.
