    Just take the watts link of the a frame.

    The only plus is unsprung weight, and honestly its not worth it, especially when you consider it is a trans-axel configuration, so basically you take the nice light t50 out of the middle, and stick a heavier unit in the ass.

    EDIT: I forgot to add, you would have find a way to brace the engine, which wouldn't be cheap, well none of it would be.

    i think most alfa's have an lsd stock. thats probably the reason.

    you should take it out, put something normal in there, and never speak of it again
