RE: G60's on 4kq

I know it would require a lot work, but I was thinking of doing the
transplant from two standpoints:
1) The shift linkage on 4kq's and 5kq's just plain sucks.  The plastic
bushings (or whatever you want to call them) love to break and/or wear
out making the tranny shift crappy.  The kicker is that they are a major
PITA to change out.
2) I would prefer to have the Torsen center diff, instead of a manual
diff lock.

It's not something I have my heart set on, but it is an idea I have
tossed around.

Thanks for the info!!
