Ok so I need some help on info here.. my installer is asking me/telling if there is any modifications involved in installing a wavetrac diff in my gen3 casing.. please no speculations I just need someone that has done this and let me know what if there was any modifications... thanks in advance
I called unitrax.. he said no modifications needed. I can use my original 373 gears cuz those were ok.. also ordered a master bearing kit to put in all the new bearings in since it's down. I guess no one here actually changed their rear diff to wave trac .. the reason I posted this is because unitrax was closed and figured I can get an answer before the morning.. but as usual I get just smart ass answers and speculations as usual.. that's why I don't frequent this site as much as I used to...oh and for who ever is going to do the swap like me to waveteac... your welcome !

So why a Wavetrac? Obviously you got the idea from someone...that had done it before? What did they say or how did you arrive at the decision to go with Wavetrac? Now I want to know if this is something I should do. Anyone do this before? Any modifications needed to the case?
I have a 2006, and I had Nth Moto install a Wavetrac just over a year ago during my build. I'm not sure how you ended up with 3.73 gears when stock is 3.07? Nothing needed modification in the case, but I decided to go with DSS 1500hp axels, so the did have to customize/modify the stub shafts somewhat.
I went with the Wavetrac for improved performance on the road course and superior strength over the factory diff.
I had 3.73 gears with the stock L S D, so now that my stock Lsd has gone bad I will get wavetrac Lsd since I go to drag strip a lot. UNitrax said i can use my original ring and pinion on my wavetrac . I know 3.07 is stock, but I have 3.73 in there
