I'm a locker guy thru and thru.  It requires more involvement from the driver, and you lose ABS function during activation (and don't forget that with the conversion you will need to run an ABS OFF wire), but it also depends on what you plan on doing with the car in terms of performance and/or driving environment.

As a rule, lockers are predictable at the limit (read U all the time), Torsens aren't.  What you need to assess is where you drive.  Don't forget to factor that *at the limit* is at the limit of adhesion, which isn't always in a performance environment, read: it's strictly a HP/CF ratio.

Ben, you've had both, trust your instincts.
