I'm using a welded 3.46 and it's been working very well so far.

What suspension setup are you running? Lower and stiffer is better, especially for that open diff. Since you can't power over or clutch kick it to initiate the slide, you're going to have to carry a lot of speed on entry and you'll have to flick it to get the rear end out with momentum. If you have absolutely no drift experience I'd suggest you start slow and get used to how the car feels sideways for extended periods of time.
So over the past weeks Ive been doing my research. I spoke too Ray at Kaaz LSD's and will be ordering a 1.5way kaaz along with a 3.46 diff.

As far as my suspension setup goes now Im running BC coils/camber plates (8kg/10kg), all new front control arms w/ melye bushing, Velocity rear adjustable control arms. Im ordering hotchks Sways this week as well

Now do you currently have your subframe reinforced? Im a little worried about that and considering getting the turner reinforcement kit.
