    Yeah GM recommends the Limited Slip Additive even with the Torsen LSD. That additive was originally designed for noise reduction in clutch LSDs. But being that the Torsen is a mechanical LSD, I'm not really sure why it would be neccessary. Anyways leaving it out won't hurt anything. If the LSD gets noisey then throw a bottle of the additive in.

    adding the additive either way won't negatively affect the performance of the diff though...correct?

    I thought ALL the F-bodies 93 and up OE diff was synthetic. My owners manual says use 75-90 synthetic for all differetials. Only difference is it says with a complete drain and fill for limited slips to put in the 4 oz LSD additive.

    That way it can see things in a different way.

    Somewhere near six if you drop the pan and change the fluid that way. If you have flush machine access, I would use 12 for a real thorough flush.
