i didnt even know there was a swap section haha i stick to drift 2nd gen and gen d pretty much i guess i should cruise the site more anyways on topic heres the question

im swapping from a s5 na to a s5 turbo2 which doesnt really matter im getting the entire front half of the car so i dont need bits a pieces it has all the s5 parts ect so what im just checking is (not as easy as im going to make it sound) but remove old motor ecu wiring ect. install new engine (ect) ecu and wiring... next step remove tranny and driveshaft, front clip is coming with tranny and mount so thats cool and then i need a t2 drive shaft, this is where things get fishy, i have a 90 gtu what do i need to do as far as diff/axles goes? do i need a new diff? im not sure what kind of lsd came stock on these and if a turbo2 driveshaft will mount into it properly and say i do need a turbo 2 diff i would also need the axles correct?
