Can you just replace/swap the whole unit as a whole? I think that would be the easiest and fastest way.

Theoretically all you need to do is swap out your old diff housing with the crown wheel attached. However, there may be a slightly different diff case size - best bet is to contact Kevin Bird at Birds UK www.birds.uk.com and ask his advice

Ideally you would go to a shop that knows what they are doing (e.g., KMS) and have them remove the final drive (whole pumpkin) from old car, have the Quaife installed in that final drive, then remove the new final drive and put it in old car, replaced by old final drive with Quaife in new car.

So you would need to order the Quaife chunk, have it in hand when your new car arrives, take both cars to KMS and let Brett do his thing.
