Is there any machining that needs to be done to install the wavetrac or quaife? I some machining experience but it's pretty limited.
I don't believe so, assuming you are running sufficiently short gears. I think they both only fit in the stock case with a 3.07 or higher ratio but you'll want to ask the diff manufacturer.

The diff I set up had 3.38 gears but now has 3.23 gears and it fit in the stock case without any problem.
