I have what I’m pretty sure is a 3.55 clutch type LSD from a 96 SVX. Will a 93 Impreza open diff’s 4.11 r&p install into the beefier SVX unit?

I know about swapping just the diff chunk for the open carrier but I want the 4.11’s in the larger unit.

96 SVX LSD diff on left, 93 Imp open on right (excuse the rainwater milkshake):

The SVX is not a clutch typ LSD. The LSD is viscous type. It would be wonderful if it was a mechanical clutch type.
