I wanting to swap my ea81 box for ea82 fulltime 4WD.

FYI: I now have a ea82 turbo motor.

I have found a Fulltime 4WD box from a non-turbo Leone. Will this gearbox be strong enough? I pretty sure it should be OK, but I don't really know.

Also, I think think that spine counts are different. Is this correct? Is it possible to use a ea82 inner CV on the existing ea81 axles to make the gearbox work?

Another small question. Are all Fulltime 4WD gearboxs LSD?

Cheers for your help :)
