The Kaaz unit that I have doesn't require milling of the case, just FYI. It was originally procured and set up by Metric Mechanic.

One can use a grinder also; but its not as visually appealing or production-line-able as clearance via Digital mill.

Let me rephrase.

The Kaaz unit that I have doesn't require any modifications to the case.

Cool. Kaaz are good units; Great guys too. Manager of KAAZ usa is often seen at Buttonwillow

I had a Kaaz in my E30 for a while; great for track or tarmac rally.

It works well. Like the Giken, the ramps are pretty easily tuneable.

Yes, Kaaz is extremely popular with drifting friends and Japanese car friends; very economical compared to other choices as well.

I liked my kaaz unit in e30 but was not the greatest for street use (Much suggested race only)

I had a Tomei unit (built by kaaz) in my AE86 coupe; it was not nearly as aggressive as the E30 KAAZ unit.

OEM E36 lsd adapted for E46 barely fits even with milled housing. E46 aftermarket units require much less material removed or none at all for kaaz
