    I have a 2017 GT Premium with the track package and performance package. I swapped from the 3.73 Torsen to a 3.31 out of an Ecoboost. The EcoBoost diff cover does not have the threaded probe for the diff temp sensor. Honestly, I could care less about the diff temp but out of curiosity will it throw any sort of advisory on the instrument cluster? I didn't even have access to the temperature on the instrument cluster but I'm sure I could datalog it through the SCT. Also, this is an aluminum housing out of a manul with the swapped pinion flange. The car needed a diet and it was an easy way to cut 25lbs off the rear and with Steeda's diff mounting bracket it will prevent the forward ears from snapping on hard launches. I would test it out but the KB and engine is still torn apart awaiting some yet to be released products, which will be detailed in a write-up once they arrive and I get the data. Trying hard to beat the Panda Mustangs record on unopened MT82.
